Subject[PATCH v2] KVM: s390: Enable specification exception interpretation
Date
When this feature is enabled the hardware is free to interpret
specification exceptions generated by the guest, instead of causing
program interruption interceptions, but it is not required to.
There is no indication if this feature is available or not,
so we can simply set this bit and if the hardware ignores it
we fall back to intercept 8 handling.
The same applies to vSIE, we forward the guest hypervisor's bit
and fall back to injection if interpretation does not occur.

This benefits (test) programs that generate a lot of specification
exceptions (roughly 4x increase in exceptions/sec).

Interceptions will occur as before if ICTL_PINT is set,
i.e. if guest debug is enabled.
A specification exception detected on the program new PSW
will also always cause an interception.
