Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] selftests: kvm: Introduce the mem_slot_test test
This series introduces a new KVM selftest (mem_slot_test) that goal
is to verify memory slots can be added up to the maximum allowed. An
extra slot is attempted which should occur on error.

The patch 01 is needed so that the VM fd can be accessed from the
test code (for the ioctl call attempting to add an extra slot).

I ran the test successfully on x86_64, aarch64, and s390x. This
is why it is enabled to build on those arches.


Changes v1 -> v2:
- Rebased to queue
- vm_get_fd() returns int instead of unsigned int (patch 01) [drjones]
- Removed MEM_REG_FLAGS and GUEST_VM_MODE defines [drjones]
- Replaced DEBUG() with pr_info() [drjones]
- Calculate number of guest pages with vm_calc_num_guest_pages()
- Using memory region of 1 MB sized (matches mininum needed
for s390x)
- Removed the increment of guest_addr after the loop [drjones]
- Added assert for the errno when adding a slot beyond-the-limit [drjones]
- Prefer KVM_MEM_READONLY flag but on s390x it switch to KVM_MEM_LOG_DIRTY_PAGES,
so ensure the coverage of both flags. Also somewhat tests the KVM_CAP_READONLY_MEM capability check [drjones]
- Moved the test logic to test_add_max_slots(), this allows to more easily add new cases in the "suite".
