Inspired by commit 9cac38dd5d (KVM/s390: Set preempted flag during vcpu wakeup 
and interrupt delivery), except the lock holder, we want to also boost vCPUs 
that are delivering interrupts. Actually most smp_call_function_many calls are 
synchronous ipi calls, the ipi target vCPUs are also good yield candidates. 
This patch introduces vcpu->ready to boost vCPUs during wakeup and interrupt 
delivery time.

Testing on 80 HT 2 socket Xeon Skylake server, with 80 vCPUs VM 80GB RAM:
ebizzy -M

            vanilla     boosting    improved
1VM          21443       23520         9%                      
2VM           2800        8000       180%
3VM           1800        3100        72%

Testing on my Haswell desktop 8 HT, with 8 vCPUs VM 8GB RAM, two VMs, 
one running ebizzy -M, the other running 'stress --cpu 2':

w/ boosting + w/o pv sched yield(vanilla)   

            vanilla     boosting   improved 
              1570         4000      155%

w/ boosting + w/ pv sched yield(vanilla)

              1844         5157      179%   

w/o boosting, perf top in VM:

  4.22%  [kernel]       [k] call_function_i
  3.71%  [kernel]       [k] async_page_fault

w/ boosting, perf top in VM:

 38.43%  [kernel]       [k] smp_call_function_many
  6.31%  [kernel]       [k] async_page_fault
  6.13%  libc-2.23.so   [.] __memcpy_avx_unaligned
  4.88%  [kernel]       [k] call_function_interrupt

Why here and not in kvm_vcpu_wake_up (which would allow further
simplification of s390 code)?
