Agreed, putting feature-specific checks in walk_sys_regs() is probably
best avoided.  Over time we would likely accumulate a fair number of
these checks.

Note, I'm currently refactoring this so that enumeration through
KVM_GET_REG_LIST can be disabled independently of access to the
register.  This may not be the best approach, but for SVE I have a
feature-specific ID register to handle too (ID_AA64ZFR0_EL1), which
needs to be hidden from the enumeration but still accessible with
read-as-zero behaviour.

This changes the API a bit: I move to a .restrictions() callback which
returns flags to say what is disabled, and this callback is used in the
common code so that you don't have repeat your "feature present" check
in every accessor, as is currently the case.

I'm aiming to post a respun series in the next day or two.  The code
may of course change again after it gets reviewed...


Basing on [1] is probably a reasonable starting point, though.
