Subject: [PATCH V9 05/18] KVM: x86/pmu: Set MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE_EMON bit when vPMU is enabled

From: Like Xu <like.xu@...ux.intel.com>

On Intel platforms, the software can use the IA32_MISC_ENABLE[7] bit to
detect whether the processor supports performance monitoring facility.

It depends on the PMU is enabled for the guest, and a software write
operation to this available bit will be ignored. The proposal to ignore
the toggle in KVM is the way to go and that behavior matches bare metal.
