Hi Paulo,

I gave this patchset a run and it runs icount and iothread very
fast in all my testcases.

But, it suffers from the problem that commit
tried to fix.

If the virtual CPU goes to sleep waiting for a future timer
interrupt to wake it up, qemu deadlocks.

The timer interrupt never comes because time is driven by
icount, but the vCPU doesn't run any insns.
