[PATCH v7 25/27] KVM: arm64: Add a capability to advertise SVE support

To provide a uniform way to check for KVM SVE support amongst other
features, this patch adds a suitable capability KVM_CAP_ARM_SVE,
and reports it as present when SVE is available.

Changes since v5:

 * [Julien Thierry] Strip out has_vhe() sanity-check, which wasn't in
   the most logical place, and anyway doesn't really belong in this
   patch.

   Moved to KVM: arm64/sve: Allow userspace to enable SVE for vcpus
   instead.
