From: Christoffer Dall <christoffer.dall@linaro.org>

KVM/ARM differs from other architectures in having to maintain an
additional virtual address space from that of the host and the
guest, because we split the execution of KVM across both EL1 and

This results in a need to explicitly map data structures into EL2
(hyp) which are accessed from the hyp code.  As we are about to be
more clever with our FPSIMD handling on arm64, which stores data in
the task struct and uses thread_info flags, we will have to map
parts of the currently executing task struct into the EL2 virtual
address space.

However, we don't want to do this on every KVM_RUN, because it is a
fairly expensive operation to walk the page tables, and the common
execution mode is to map a single thread to a VCPU.  By introducing
a hook that architectures can select with
HAVE_KVM_VCPU_RUN_PID_CHANGE, we do not introduce overhead for
other architectures, but have a simple way to only map the data we
need when required for arm64.

This patch introduces the framework only, and wires it up in the
arm/arm64 KVM common code.

No functional change.
