KVM: Boost vCPUs that are delivering interrupts

Inspired by commit 9cac38dd5d (KVM/s390: Set preempted flag during
vcpu wakeup and interrupt delivery), we want to also boost not just
lock holders but also vCPUs that are delivering interrupts. Most
smp_call_function_many calls are synchronous, so the IPI target vCPUs
are also good yield candidates.  This patch introduces vcpu->ready to
boost vCPUs during wakeup and interrupt delivery time; unlike s390 we do
not reuse vcpu->preempted so that voluntarily preempted vCPUs are taken
into account by kvm_vcpu_on_spin, but vmx_vcpu_pi_put is not affected
(VT-d PI handles voluntary preemption separately, in pi_pre_block).

Testing on 80 HT 2 socket Xeon Skylake server, with 80 vCPUs VM 80GB RAM:
ebizzy -M

            vanilla     boosting    improved
1VM          21443       23520         9%
2VM           2800        8000       180%
3VM           1800        3100        72%

Testing on my Haswell desktop 8 HT, with 8 vCPUs VM 8GB RAM, two VMs,
one running ebizzy -M, the other running 'stress --cpu 2':

w/ boosting + w/o pv sched yield(vanilla)

            vanilla     boosting   improved
              1570         4000      155%

w/ boosting + w/ pv sched yield(vanilla)

            vanilla     boosting   improved
              1844         5157      179%

w/o boosting, perf top in VM:

 72.33%  [kernel]       [k] smp_call_function_many
  4.22%  [kernel]       [k] call_function_i
  3.71%  [kernel]       [k] async_page_fault

w/ boosting, perf top in VM:

 38.43%  [kernel]       [k] smp_call_function_many
  6.31%  [kernel]       [k] async_page_fault
  6.13%  libc-2.23.so   [.] __memcpy_avx_unaligned
  4.88%  [kernel]       [k] call_function_interrupt
