I plan to repost next week, but before that I'd like to know whether
there's any further (negative) feedback from design-wise, especially
here, which is still a bit tricky to makeup the kvmgt issue.

Now we still have the waitqueue but it'll only be used for
no-vcpu-context dirtyings, so:

- For no-vcpu-context: thread could wait in the waitqueue if it makes
vcpu0's ring soft-full (note, previously it was hard-full, so here
we make it easier to wait so we make sure )

- For with-vcpu-context: we should never wait, guaranteed by the fact
that KVM_RUN will return now if soft-full for that vcpu ring, and
above waitqueue will make sure even vcpu0's waitqueue won't be
filled up by kvmgt

Again this is still a workaround for kvmgt and I think it should not
be needed after the refactoring. It's just a way to not depend on
that work so this should work even with current kvmgt.
