Sorry, I am little confused here now:
if kvm_can_post_timer_interrupt(vcpu) return true(cpu-pm enabled), then the kvm_can_use_hv_timer will always be false;
if kvm_can_post_timer_interrupt(vcpu) return false(cpu-pm disable),then kvm_mwait_in_guest(vcpu->kvm) can't be true ether;
It seems we don't need kvm_mwait_in_guest(vcpu->kvm) here?

Sorry, I am just a little confused and not too sure about this, if anything wrong, just ignore it.

Thanks!
