KVM: New guest debug interface
This rips out the support for KVM_DEBUG_GUEST and introduces a new IOCTL instead: KVM_SET_GUEST_DEBUG. The IOCTL payload consists of a generic part, controlling the "main switch" and the single-step feature. The arch specific part adds an x86 interface for intercepting both types of debug exceptions separately and re-injecting them when the host was not interested. Moveover, the foundation for guest debugging via debug registers is layed. To signal breakpoint events properly back to userland, an arch-specific data block is now returned along KVM_EXIT_DEBUG. For x86, the arch block contains the PC, the debug exception, and relevant debug registers to tell debug events properly apart. The availability of this new interface is signaled by KVM_CAP_SET_GUEST_DEBUG. Empty stubs for not yet supported archs are provided. Note that both SVM and VTX are supported, but only the latter was tested yet. Based on the experience with all those VTX corner case, I would be fairly surprised if SVM will work out of the box.
