Subject[PATCH 1/2] kvm/x86/vmx: enable X86_FEATURE_WAITPKG in KVM capabilities
Even though we might not allow the guest to use
WAITPKG's new instructions, we should tell KVM
that the feature is supported by the host CPU.

Note that vmx_waitpkg_supported checks that WAITPKG
_can_ be set in secondary execution controls as specified
by VMX capability MSR, rather that we actually enable it for a guest.

Fixes: e69e72faa3a0 KVM: x86: Add support for user wait instructions
