SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 1/7] kvm: x86: Expose XFD CPUID to guest
I need a formletter for these...

GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID advertises support to userspace, it does not expose anything
to the guest.

KVM must not advertise support until it actually has said support, i.e. this
patch needs to go at the end of the series.

Also, adding the kvm_cpu_cap flag in a separate patch isn't strictly required.
In most cases, I would go so far as to say that if there is additional enabling
to be done, advertising the feature should be done in the same patch that adds
the last bits of enabling. Putting the CPUID stuff in its own patch doesn't
usually add values, e.g. if there's a bug in the actual support code bisecting
will point at the wrong patch if userspace conditions its vCPU model on
GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID.
