    kvm: move actual VM memory shrink out of kvm_lock
    We face a situation when a node with many cpu cores (88) and a lot
    of RAM (1Tb) and many VMs (300) has almost all cpu cores busy in
    all but one just wait for kvm_lock,
    the last one is busy with actual memory shrink for a VM.
    Let's allow parallel VM shrinking:
    - just inc the VM usage count, so it's not destroyed under us
    - drop the kvm_lock, so over shrinkers are free to go
    - and shrink our VM without holding the kvm_lock
    - dec the VM usage count after we finish with shrinking
    As we shrink only single VM, we don't need the protect the vm_list
    all the way during shrink.
