Let's just implement the bitmap of fixed counters (it's okay to follow
the same action as gp counters), and add it to struct
kvm_pmu_event_filter. While at it, we can add a bunch of padding u32s
and a flags field that can come in handy later (it would fail the ioctl
if nonzero).

Wei, Eric, who's going to do it? :)
