Once the IOCTL is agreed, I think you would need to update 
include/linux/kvm.h.

FWIW, older Linux will not accept a KVM type other than 0. So I think 
the best would be to bail out if KVM_ARM_GET_MAX_VM_PHYS_SHIFT does not 
exist.

For safety, you could even check that arch.phys_shift is always 40 when 
running under older Linux.
