Sorry, this was done while I was not handling the KVM tree. At the very
least the commit message should have included the original hashes of the
commit and the revert. This way one could have found the original Acks:

Then you pay for _all_ preemptions of _all_ processes in the guest,
instead of the hopefully rare ones that do a CPU migration.

Preempt notifiers are registered on current only, this one is global.

Of course, adding a static key is a good idea. I can also add a config
symbol, selected by paravirt, if you want.
