From: Alex Bennée <alex.bennee@linaro.org>

We only really need to grab the lock for initial setup (so we don't
race with the thread-spawning thread). After that we can drop the lock
for the whole main loop and only grab it for waiting for IO events.

There is a slight wrinkle for the round-robin TCG thread as we also
expire timers which needs to be done under BQL as they are in the
main-loop.

This is stage one of reducing the lock impact as we can drop the
requirement of implicit BQL for async work and only grab the lock when
we need to sleep on the cpu->halt_cond.
