There are now only two uses of the global exit_request left.

The first ensures we exit the run_loop when we first start to process
pending work and in the kick handler. This is just as easily done by
setting the first_cpu->exit_request flag.

The second use is in the round robin kick routine. The global
exit_request ensured every vCPU would set its local exit_request and
cause a full exit of the loop. Now the iothread isn't being held while
running we can just rely on the kick handler to push us out as intended.

We lightly re-factor the main vCPU thread to ensure cpu->exit_requests
cause us to exit the main loop and process any IO requests that might
come along.

v5
  - minor merge conflict with kick patch
v4
  - moved to after iothread unlocking patch
  - needed to remove kick exit_request as well.
  - remove extraneous cpu->exit_request check
  - remove stray exit_request setting
  - remove needless atomic operation
