Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] KVM: x86: X86_FEATURE bit() cleanup
Small series to add build-time protections on reverse CPUID lookup (and
other usages of bit()), and to rename the misleading-generic bit() helper
to something that better conveys its purpose.

I don't love emulator changes in patch 1 as adding one-off helpers is a
bit silly, but IMO it's the lesser of two evils, e.g. adding dedicated
helpers is arguably less error prone than manually encoding a CPUID
lookup, and the helpers approach avoids having to include cpuid.h in the
emulator code.

- Rework the assertions to use the reverse_cpuid table instead of
using the last cpufeatures word (which was not at all intuitive).

Sean Christopherson (5):
KVM: x86: Add dedicated emulator helpers for querying CPUID features
KVM: x86: Move bit() helper to cpuid.h
KVM: x86: Add CPUID_7_1_EAX to the reverse CPUID table
KVM: x86: Expand build-time assertion on reverse CPUID usage
KVM: x86: Refactor and rename bit() to feature_bit() macro
