Subject[PATCH kernel] KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Make unique debugfs nodename
Currently it is vm-$currentpid which works as long as there is just one
VM per the userspace (99.99% cases) but produces a bunch
of "debugfs: Directory 'vm16679' with parent 'kvm' already present!"
when syzkaller (syscall fuzzer) is running so only one VM is present in
the debugfs for a given process.

This changes the debugfs node to include the LPID which alone should be
system wide unique. This leaves the existing pid for the convenience of
matching the VM's debugfs with the running userspace process (QEMU).
