I would prefer to call this KVM_GENERIC_MEMORY_ATTRIBUTES. Similar to
KVM_GENERIC_HARDWARE_ENABLING, ARM does need/have hardware enabling, it just
doesn't want KVM's generic implementation. In this case, pKVM does support memory
attributes, but uses stage-2 tables to track ownership and doesn't need/want the
overhead of the generic implementation.

I think we should carve out bits 0-2 for RWX, but I don't think we should actually
define them until they're actually accepted by KVM.

Nit, no need for "supported_attrs", just consume kvm_supported_mem_attributes()
directly.

Peeking forward multiple patches, this needs to take kvm->slots_lock, not kvm->lock.
There's a bug in the lpage_disallowed patch that I believe can most easily be
solved by making this mutually exclusive with memslot changes.

When a memslot is created, KVM needs to walk through the attributes to detect
whether or not the attributes are identical for the entire slot. To avoid races,
that means taking slots_lock.

The alternative would be to query the attributes when adjusting the hugepage level
and avoid lpage_disallowed entirely, but in the (very brief) time I've thought
about this I haven't come up with a way to do that in a performant manner.

Curly braces needed on the for-loop.
