v6:
- Removed X86_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS. Just keeping the dependency
and doc update.

v5:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/158940940570.47998.17107695356894054769.stgit@naples-babu.amd.com/
- Just submiting the first config update patch. Paulo said he already queued
patch 2 & 3.
- This patch addresses the few text changes suggested by Dave Hansen.

v4:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/158932780954.44260.4292038705292213548.stgit@naples-babu.amd.com/
- Removed all the source changes related to config parameter.
Just kept the doc cahnges and add new config parameter
X86_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS which shadows X86_INTEL_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS.
- Minor change in feature detection in kvm/cpuid.c

v3:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/158923982830.20128.14580309786525588408.stgit@naples-babu.amd.com/#r
- Fixed the problem Jim Mattson pointed out which can cause pkru
resources to get corrupted during host and guest switches.
- Moved the PKU feature detection code from VMX.c to common code.

v2:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/158897190718.22378.3974700869904223395.stgit@naples-babu.amd.com/
- Introduced intermediate config option X86_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS to
avoid user propmpts. Kept X86_INTEL_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS as is.
Eventually, we will be moving to X86_MEMORY_PROTECTION_KEYS after
couple of kernel revisions.
- Moved pkru data structures to kvm_vcpu_arch. Moved save/restore pkru
to kvm_load_host_xsave_state/kvm_load_guest_xsave_state.
