I suspect that if AP instructions are not installed, then neither
STFLE.12 nor STFLE.15 would be set in the real hardware. This
comment, however, is talking about an administrator setting the
facility for a guest, not real hardware. Having said that and after
thinking about it a little more, I am going to remove that last sentence
because the CPU model configuration (e.g., as specified on the qemu
command line) will fail if the QCI or APFT facility is enabled when the
CPU model feature KVM_S390_VM_CPU_FEAT_AP is not.
