context_tracking: avoid irq_save/irq_restore on guest entry and exit
guest_enter and guest_exit must be called with interrupts disabled, since they take the vtime_seqlock with write_seq{lock,unlock}. Therefore, it is not necessary to check for exceptions, nor to save/restore the IRQ state, when context tracking functions are called by guest_enter and guest_exit. Split the body of context_tracking_entry and context_tracking_exit out to __-prefixed functions, and use them from KVM. Rik van Riel has measured this to speed up a tight vmentry/vmexit loop by about 2%.
