Subject[PATCH v8] KVM: LAPIC: Apply change to TDCR right away to the timer
Date
From: Wanpeng Li <wanpeng.li@hotmail.com>

The description in the Intel SDM of how the divide configuration
register is used: "The APIC timer frequency will be the processor's bus
clock or core crystal clock frequency divided by the value specified in
the divide configuration register."

Observation of baremetal shown that when the TDCR is change, the TMCCT
does not change or make a big jump in value, but the rate at which it
count down change.

The patch update the emulation to APIC timer to so that a change to the
divide configuration would be reflected in the value of the counter and
when the next interrupt is triggered.
