This patchset allows userspace to be a fallback for handling emulation errors.

v1 -> v2:

 - Added additional documentation for KVM_CAP_EXIT_ON_EMULATION_FAILURE.
 - In prepare_emulation_failure_exit():
   - Created a local variable for vcpu->run.
   - Cleared the flags, emulation_failure.flags.
   - Or'd the instruction bytes flag on to emulation_failure.flags.
 - Updated the comment for KVM_INTERNAL_ERROR_EMULATION flags on how they are
   to be used.
 - Updated the comment for struct emulation_failure.

v2 -> v3:

 - Update documentation for KVM_CAP_EXIT_ON_EMULATION_FAILURE.
 - Fix spacing in prepare_emulation_failure_exit().

v3 -> v4:

 - In prepare_emulation_failure_exit():
   - Clear instruction bytes to 0x90.
   - Copy over insn_size bytes rather than sizeof(ctxt->fetch.data).
 - set_page_table_entry() takes a pte rather than mask.
 - In _vm_get_page_table_entry():
   - Removed check for page aligned addresses only.
   - Added canonical check.
   - Added a check to make sure no reserved bits are set along the walk except
     for the final pte (the pte cannot have the reserved bits checked otherwise
     the test would fail).
   - Added check to ensure superpage bits are clear.
 - Added check in test for 'allow_smaller_maxphyaddr' module parameter.
 - If the is_flds() check fails, only look at the first byte.
 - Don't use labels to increment the RIP.  Decode the instruction well enough to
   ensure it is only 2-bytes.

v4 -> v5:

 - Switch 'insn_size' to u32.
 - Add documentation for how the flags are used.
 - Remove 'max_insn_size' and use 'sizeof(run->emulation_failure.insn_bytes)' instead.
 - Fix typos.
 - Fix canonical check.
 - Add reserved check for bit-7 of PML4E.
 - Add reserved check for bit-63 of all page table levels if EFER.NXE = 0.
 - Remove opcode check (it might be a prefix).
 - Remove labels.
 - Remove detritus (rogue cpuid entry in the test).
