Subject[PATCH 00/26] KVM: x86: Purge kvm_x86_ops->*_supported()
Our benevolent dictator decreed that "all *_supported() should be removed,
and the code moved from __do_cpuid_func() to set_supported_cpuid"[*].

To make that happen, move CPUID and MSR checks from x86 into SVM/VMX via
the existing ->set_supported_cpuid() and a ->new has_virtualized_msr() ops

As usual, there's a fair amount of cleanup in between the mechanical
changes. Most notable is the introduction of cpuid entry accessors and
mutators to replace all of the code to manipulate individual feature bits
in cpuid entries, which is error prone and annoying. MPX (*sigh*) also
gets a healthly dose of cleanup.

I don't love every patch in this series. Specifically, adding an extra
call to ->set_supported_cpuid() to handle XSAVES is ugly. But, I do like
that it purges all ->*_supported() hooks. And practically speaking, odds
are good that CPUID 0xD.1 will get more feature bits, i.e. keeping
->xsaves_supported() would likely lead to another ->*_supported() hook.

Paolo also expressed a dislike for clearing bits in set_supported_cpuid().
I don't have a strong opinion regarding clearing bits, but the alternative
approach, i.e. leave the bits clear and then set them in vendor code,
gets quite kludgy because the vendor code (mostly VMX) would need to
manually recheck boot_cpu_data to ensure it wasn't advertising a feature
that the user/kernel expressly disabled. IMO, forcing manual checks is
more likely to introduce errors and provides less insight into why VMX
needs to adjust the advertised CPUID values (VMCS != CPUID).

Tested on Intel by verifying the output of KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID is
identical before and after (on almost every patch) on a Haswell and Coffee
Lake. The big untested pieces are PKU and PT on Intel, and everything AMD.
