KVM: arm/arm64: vgic: Let userspace opt-in to writable v2 IGROUPR
Simply letting IGROUPR be writable from userspace would break migration from old kernels to newer kernels, because old kernels incorrectly report interrupt groups as group 1. This would not be a big problem if userspace wrote GICD_IIDR as read from the kernel, because we could detect the incompatibility and return an error to userspace. Unfortunately, this is not the case with current userspace implementations and simply letting IGROUPR be writable from userspace for an emulated GICv2 silently breaks migration and causes the destination VM to no longer run after migration. We now encourage userspace to write the read and expected value of GICD_IIDR as the first part of a GIC register restore, and if we observe a write to GICD_IIDR we know that userspace has been updated and has had a chance to cope with older kernels (VGICv2 IIDR.Revision == 0) incorrectly reporting interrupts as group 1, and therefore we now allow groups to be user writable.
