    ms/KVM: x86: thoroughly disarm LAPIC timer around TSC deadline switch
    Our routines look at tscdeadline and period when deciding state of a
    timer.  The timer is disarmed when switching between TSC deadline and
    other modes, so we should set everything to disarmed state.

    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
