kvm/x86: Avoid async PF preempting the kernel incorrectly
Currently, in PREEMPT_COUNT=n kernel, kvm_async_pf_task_wait() could call schedule() to reschedule in some cases. This could result in accidentally ending the current RCU read-side critical section early, causing random memory corruption in the guest, or otherwise preempting the currently running task inside between preempt_disable and preempt_enable. The difficulty to handle this well is because we don't know whether an async PF delivered in a preemptible section or RCU read-side critical section for PREEMPT_COUNT=n, since preempt_disable()/enable() and rcu_read_lock/unlock() are both no-ops in that case. To cure this, we treat any async PF interrupting a kernel context as one that cannot be preempted, preventing kvm_async_pf_task_wait() from choosing the schedule() path in that case. To do so, a second parameter for kvm_async_pf_task_wait() is introduced, so that we know whether it's called from a context interrupting the kernel, and the parameter is set properly in all the callsites.
