There is no vcpu in this ioctl, thus we cannot check vcpu->arch.guest_fpu.perm.

This then requires exposing xstate_get_guest_group_perm() to KVM. Thomas,
are you OK with this change given Paolo's ask? v1 included this change but
it was not necessary at the moment:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/87lf0ot50q.ffs@tglx/

and Paolo, do we want to document that prctl() must be done before
calling KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID? If yes, where is the proper location?

Thanks
Kevin
