This is to fix some lock holder preemption issues. Some other locks
implementation do a spin loop before acquiring the lock itself.
Currently kernel has an interface of bool vcpu_is_preempted(int cpu). It
takes the CPU as parameter and return true if the CPU is preempted.
Then kernel can break the spin loops upon the retval of vcpu_is_preempted.

As kernel has used this interface, So lets support it.
