SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/5] KVM: LAPIC: add APIC Timer periodic/oneshot mode VMX preemption timer support

Periodic timer does not advance apic->lapic_timer.target_expiration,
when rearming the hrtimer, so this would incorrectly return 0 in
subsequent periods.

For oneshot timer, there is no need to hrtimer_get_remaining(), because
apic->lapic_timer.tscdeadline and apic->lapic_timer.target_expiration
are already correct, so we could just use them.

The same could be true for the periodic timer as well, but
apic->lapic_timer.target_expiration nor apic->lapic_timer.tscdeadline is
advanced in apic_timer_fn(), so they are soon incorrect.

I think it would be better to add a function to advance the periodic
timer and use it in kvm_lapic_expired_hv_timer() and in apic_timer_fn().

The function can be simpler than set_target_expiration(), because it
just adds the period to an existing timer. Periodic timer will also be
better then, because the period will not depend on KVM's latency when
rearming.

This would zero apic->lapic_timer.target_expiration of
apic_lvtt_period() when !kvm_lapic_hv_timer_in_use().

I think we don't want to ever do that, so we want

if (!(apic_lvtt_period(apic)) {

or maybe even better

if (apic_lvtt_tscdeadline(apic))
apic->lapic_timer.tscdeadline = 0;

if (apic_lvtt_oneshot(apic)) {
apic->lapic_timer.tscdeadline = 0;
apic->lapic_timer.target_expiration = ktime_set(0, 0);
}
