    Pull KVM updates from Paolo Bonzini:
     "4.11 is going to be a relatively large release for KVM, with a little
      over 200 commits and noteworthy changes for most architectures.
       - GICv3 save/restore
       - cache flushing fixes
       - working MSI injection for GICv3 ITS
       - physical timer emulation
       - various improvements under the hood
       - support for SMP guests
       - a large rewrite of MMU emulation. KVM MIPS can now use MMU
         notifiers to support copy-on-write, KSM, idle page tracking,
         swapping, ballooning and everything else. KVM_CAP_READONLY_MEM is
         also supported, so that writes to some memory regions can be
         treated as MMIO. The new MMU also paves the way for hardware
         virtualization support.
       - support for POWER9 using the radix-tree MMU for host and guest
       - resizable hashed page table
       - bugfixes.
       - expose more features to the guest
       - more SIMD extensions
       - instruction execution protection
       - ESOP2
       - improved hashing in the MMU
       - faster PageLRU tracking for Intel CPUs without EPT A/D bits
       - some refactoring of nested VMX entry/exit code, preparing for live
         migration support of nested hypervisors
       - expose yet another AVX512 CPUID bit
       - host-to-guest PTP support
       - refactoring of interrupt injection, with some optimizations thrown
         in and some duct tape removed.
       - remove lazy FPU handling
       - optimizations of user-mode exits
       - optimizations of vcpu_is_preempted() for KVM guests
       - alternative signaling mechanism that doesn't pound on
