Can two vcpus match the same tid?

vcpu_put()/_load()s are unneeded here, preempt notifiers will
automatically call kvm_arch_vcpu_put()/_load() if we schedule.

We're switching to tracepoints instead of homebrewed statistics.  It's
in feature-removal-schedule.txt already.  It's okay to add them now, but
please prepare for their removal.
