From: Aravinda Prasad <aravinda@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

This patch introduces a new KVM capability to control
how KVM behaves on machine check exception (MCE).
Without this capability, KVM redirects machine check
exceptions to guest's 0x200 vector, if the address in
error belongs to the guest. With this capability KVM
causes a guest exit with NMI exit reason.

The new capability is required to avoid problems if
a new kernel/KVM is used with an old QEMU for guests
that don't issue "ibm,nmi-register". As old QEMU does
not understand the NMI exit type, it treats it as a
fatal error. However, the guest could have handled
the machine check error if the exception was delivered
to guest's 0x200 interrupt vector instead of NMI exit
in case of old QEMU.

+With this capability a machine check exception in the guest address
+space will cause KVM to exit the guest with NMI exit reason. This
+enables QEMU to build error log and branch to guest kernel registered
+machine check handling routine. Without this capability KVM will
