Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] KVM: 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 the
secondary execution controls as specified by VMX capability MSR,
rather that indicate that we actually enable it for a guest.

Fixes: e69e72faa3a07 (KVM: x86: Add support for user wait instructions)
