ok.

Mark suggested to provide 2 flags [1] for Address and Generic 
authentication so I was thinking of adding 2 features like,

+#define KVM_ARM_VCPU_PTRAUTH_ADDR		4 /* CPU uses pointer address 
authentication */
+#define KVM_ARM_VCPU_PTRAUTH_GENERIC		5 /* CPU uses pointer generic 
authentication */

And supply both of them concatenated in VCPU_INIT stage. Kernel KVM 
would expect both feature requested together.

I will check it.
