Subject: [PATCH] s390/kvm: dont announce RRBM support

commit 87cac8f879a5ecd7109dbe688087e8810b3364eb upstream.

Newer kernels (linux-next with the transparent huge page patches)
use rrbm if the feature is announced via feature bit 66.
RRBM will cause intercepts, so KVM does not handle it right now,
causing an illegal instruction in the guest.
The  easy solution is to disable the feature bit for the guest.

This fixes bugs like:
Kernel BUG at 0000000000124c2a [verbose debug info unavailable]
