KVM: x86: Fix potential preemption when get the current kvmclock timestamp

 BUG: using __this_cpu_read() in preemptible [00000000] code: qemu-system-x86/2809
 caller is __this_cpu_preempt_check+0x13/0x20

This can be reproduced by run kvm-unit-tests/hyperv_stimer.flat w/
CONFIG_PREEMPT and CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT enabled.

Safe access to per-CPU data requires a couple of constraints, though: the
thread working with the data cannot be preempted and it cannot be migrated
while it manipulates per-CPU variables. If the thread is preempted, the
thread that replaces it could try to work with the same variables; migration
to another CPU could also cause confusion. However there is no preemption
disable when reads host per-CPU tsc rate to calculate the current kvmclock
timestamp.

This patch fixes it by utilizing get_cpu/put_cpu pair to guarantee both
__this_cpu_read() and rdtsc() are not preempted.
