Subject[PATCH 0/5] KVM: x86: Quirk "MWAIT never faults" behavior
Add a quirk to let userspace opt into correctly emulating MONITOR/MWAIT
when they are disabled in CPUID instead of unconditionally treating them
as NOPs.

The selftest changes are based on the CPUID overhaul[*], the KVM patch
should apply cleanly on kvm/queue, commit 55371f1d0c01 ("...").

Note! Patch 3 is a fix for a bug in the Hyper-V Features test that I
encountered when verifying the exception fixup works as expected. The
"bug", which is in reality a rather large set of bugs, basically turns
the test into a giant nop. The patch really should be "backported" all
the way across the selftests overhaul, but I don't care enough about
Hyper-V to spend yet more time on selftests at this point.
