This patch fixes a tscdeadline_latency hang when specifying a very
small breakmax value.  It's easily reproduced on my host when set
breakmax to e.g. 10 TSC clocks.

The problem is test_tsc_deadline_timer() can be very slow because
we've got printf() in there.  So when reach the main loop we might
have already triggered the IRQ handler for multiple times and we might
have triggered the hitmax condition which will turn IRQ off.  Then
with no IRQ that first HLT instruction can last forever.

Fix this by don't enable irq and use safe_halt() as suggested by Sean
