Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86: kvm: avoid constant-conversion warning
Date
clang finds a contruct suspicious that converts an unsigned
character to a signed integer and back, causing an overflow:

arch/x86/kvm/mmu.c:4605:39: error: implicit conversion from 'int' to 'u8' (aka 'unsigned char') changes value from -205 to 51 [-Werror,-Wconstant-conversion]
u8 wf = (pfec & PFERR_WRITE_MASK) ? ~w : 0;
~~ ^~
arch/x86/kvm/mmu.c:4607:38: error: implicit conversion from 'int' to 'u8' (aka 'unsigned char') changes value from -241 to 15 [-Werror,-Wconstant-conversion]
u8 uf = (pfec & PFERR_USER_MASK) ? ~u : 0;
~~ ^~
arch/x86/kvm/mmu.c:4609:39: error: implicit conversion from 'int' to 'u8' (aka 'unsigned char') changes value from -171 to 85 [-Werror,-Wconstant-conversion]
u8 ff = (pfec & PFERR_FETCH_MASK) ? ~x : 0;
~~ ^~

Add an explicit cast to tell clang that everything works as
intended here.
