KVM: Route irq 0 to vcpu 0 exclusively
Avi Kivity [Mon, 25 Feb 2008 08:28:31 +0000 (10:28 +0200)]
Some Linux versions allow the timer interrupt to be processed by more than
one cpu, leading to hangs due to tsc instability.  Work around the issue
by only disaptching the interrupt to vcpu 0.

Problem analyzed (and patch tested) by Sheng Yang.
