[RFC PATCH v2 22/23] KVM: Documentation: Document arm64 core registers in detail

Since the the sizes of members the core arm64 registers vary, the
list of register encodings that make sense is not a simple linear
sequence.

To clarify which encodings to use, this patch adds a brief list
to the documentation.
