commit b99040853738 adds opaque param to kvm_arch_hardware_setup(), which isn't
reverted in this patch. I.e., this patch is a partial revert of b99040853738
plus manual changes to RISC-V. Given that, "process it as a revert" means
clearly say in changelog that this commit contains a partial revert of commit
b99040853738 ("KVM: Pass kvm_init()'s opaque param to additional arch funcs").
