KVM: keep track of which task is running a KVM vcpu
Rik van Riel [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 14:52:41 +0000 (09:52 -0500)]
Keep track of which task is running a KVM vcpu.  This helps us
figure out later what task to wake up if we want to boost a
vcpu that got preempted.

Unfortunately there are no guarantees that the same task
always keeps the same vcpu, so we can only track the task
across a single "run" of the vcpu.
