Notify VM exit is introduced to mitigate the potential DOS attach from
malicious VM. This series is the userspace part to enable this feature
through a new KVM capability KVM_CAP_X86_NOTIFY_VMEXIT. The detailed
info can be seen in Patch 2.

The corresponding KVM support can be found in linux 6.0-rc:
(2f4073e08f4c KVM: VMX: Enable Notify VM exit)

This patch set depends on some definition which can be updated from
scripts/update-linux-headers.sh. The corresponding separate patch set is
available at:
