Subject: [PATCH v5 1/5] x86,kvm: Add MSR_KVM_GET_RNG_SEED and a matching feature bit

This adds a simple interface to allow a guest to request 64 bits of
host nonblocking entropy.  This is independent of virtio-rng for a
couple of reasons:

 - It's intended to be usable during early boot, when a trivial
   synchronous interface is needed.

 - virtio-rng gives blocking entropy, and making guest boot wait for
   the host's /dev/random will cause problems.

MSR_KVM_GET_RNG_SEED is intended to provide 64 bits of best-effort
cryptographically secure data for use as a seed.  It provides no
guarantee that the result contains any actual entropy.
