Subject[PATCH 2/3] kvm hypervisor : Add hypercalls to support pv-ticketlock
Add two hypercalls to KVM hypervisor to support pv-ticketlocks.

KVM_HC_WAIT_FOR_KICK blocks the calling vcpu until another vcpu kicks it or it
is woken up because of an event like interrupt.

KVM_HC_KICK_CPU allows the calling vcpu to kick another vcpu.

The presence of these hypercalls is indicated to guest via
KVM_FEATURE_WAIT_FOR_KICK/KVM_CAP_WAIT_FOR_KICK. Qemu needs a corresponding
patch to pass up the presence of this feature to guest via cpuid. Patch to qemu
will be sent separately.
