Agreed.

How about target_expiration? It should be ktime_t as the second
parameter of hrtimer_start().

Agreed.

Actually I catch several apic->lapic_timer.period == 0 here, in
addition, the oneshot mode test of kvm-unit-tests/apic.flat will fail
if change it to WARN_ONCE() instead of return directly.

Agreed. I  just sent out RFC V3 to handle these comments, thanks for
your active review, Radim. It is really helpful. :)
