So far we synchronized any dirty VCPU state back into the kernel before
updating the guest debug state. This was a tribute to a deficite in x86
kernels before 2.6.33. But as this is an arch-dependent issue, it is
better handle in the x86 part of KVM and remove the writeback point for
generic code. This also avoids overwriting the flushed state later on if
user space decides to change some more registers before resuming the
guest.

We furthermore need to reinject guest exceptions via the appropriate
mechanism. That is KVM_SET_GUEST_DEBUG for older kernels and
KVM_SET_VCPU_EVENTS for recent ones. Using both mechanisms at the same
time will cause state corruptions.

Inferring one property of kvm.ko from another is not good, since it 
creates problems with backports.  Better to create a separate KVM_CAP_ 
for the issue you're testing (and we can retroactively apply it to 2.6.33).
