x86/hyperv: Replace kmap() with kmap_local_page()

kmap() is being deprecated in favor of kmap_local_page()[1].

There are two main problems with kmap(): (1) It comes with an overhead as
mapping space is restricted and protected by a global lock for
synchronization and (2) it also requires global TLB invalidation when the
kmap's pool wraps and it might block when the mapping space is fully
utilized until a slot becomes available.

With kmap_local_page() the mappings are per thread, CPU local, can take
page faults, and can be called from any context (including interrupts).
It is faster than kmap() in kernels with HIGHMEM enabled. Furthermore,
the tasks can be preempted and, when they are scheduled to run again, the
kernel virtual addresses are restored and are still valid.

In the fuction hyperv_init() of hyperv/hv_init.c, the mapping is used in a
single thread and is short live. So, in this case, it's safe to simply use
kmap_local_page() to create mapping, and this avoids the wasted cost of
kmap() for global synchronization.

In addtion, the fuction hyperv_init() checks if kmap() fails by BUG_ON().
From the original discussion[2], the BUG_ON() here is just used to
explicitly panic NULL pointer. So still keep the BUG_ON() in place to check
if kmap_local_page() fails. Based on this consideration, memcpy_to_page()
is not selected here but only kmap_local_page() is used.

Therefore, replace kmap() with kmap_local_page() in hyperv/hv_init.c.
