Subject[PATCH 1/2] kvm: whitelist struct kvm_vcpu_arch
Date
On x86, ARM and s390, struct kvm_vcpu_arch has a usercopy region
taht is read and written by the KVM_GET/SET_CPUID2 ioctls (x86)
or KVM_GET/SET_ONE_REG (ARM/s390). Without whitelisting the area,
KVM is completely broken on those architectures with usercopy hardening
enabled.

For now, allow writing to the entire struct on all architectures.
The KVM tree will not refine this to an architecture-specific
subset of struct kvm_vcpu_arch.
