KVM: x86: Prevent deadlock against tk_core.seq
syzbot reported a possible deadlock in pvclock_gtod_notify(): CPU 0 CPU 1 write_seqcount_begin(&tk_core.seq); pvclock_gtod_notify() spin_lock(&pool->lock); queue_work(..., &pvclock_gtod_work) ktime_get() spin_lock(&pool->lock); do { seq = read_seqcount_begin(tk_core.seq) ... } while (read_seqcount_retry(&tk_core.seq, seq); While this is unlikely to happen, it's possible. Delegate queue_work() to irq_work() which postpones it until the tk_core.seq write held region is left and interrupts are reenabled.
