It's just a quick mechanism for me to expose some relevant information
to userspace via sysfs using the hv_perf_caps_get() function's returned
data. Documentation for this sysfs interface (and the rest) is in a
later patch.
I don't expect any more uses to show up unless the firmware decides to
add another capability bit (in which case I'll want to expose it as well).

whoops, thought I had fixed those 2 already.
