Subject[PATCH 1/2] KVM: x86: svm: Pass XSAVES to guest if available on host
In commit
55412b2eda2b7 ("kvm: x86: Add kvm_x86_ops hook that enables XSAVES for guest")

XSAVES was enabled on VMX with a few additional tweaks and was always
disabled on SVM. Before ZEN XSAVES was not available so it made no
difference. With Zen it is possible to expose it to the guest if it is
available on the host.
I didn't find anything close to VMX's "VM-Execution Controls" and
exposing this flag based on the CPUID flags cause no harm so far.

Expose the XSAVES flag to the guest if the host supports it.
