    ms/KVM: LAPIC: Fix lapic timer mode transition
    SDM TSC-Deadline Mode mentioned that "Transitioning between TSC-Deadline
    mode and other timer modes also disarms the timer". So the APIC Timer Initial Count
    Register for one-shot/periodic mode should be reset. This patch do it.

    Patchset description:
    Fix guest context switch performance degradation.
    Following patches were adopted from mainline kernel to fix guest Windows
    context switch performance degradation.
    VMX preemption timer support was added in kernel-3.10.0-862.3.2.el7. In this
    case, timer incorrectly triggers despite of its disabling and causes extra
    VMexit on every context switch. These patches add correct handling of disabled

      KVM: x86: handle 0 write to TSC_DEADLINE MSR
      KVM: x86: really disarm lapic timer when clearing TMICT
      KVM: x86: thoroughly disarm LAPIC timer around TSC deadline switch

        periodic mode
