KVM: x86: work around QEMU issue with synthetic CPUID leaves
Synthesizing AMD leaves up to 0x80000021 caused problems with QEMU,
which assumes the *host* CPUID[0x80000000].EAX is higher or equal
to what KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID reports.
This causes QEMU to issue bogus host CPUIDs when preparing the input
to KVM_SET_CPUID2. It can even get into an infinite loop, which is
only terminated by an abort():
cpuid_data is full, no space for cpuid(eax:0x8000001d,ecx:0x3e)
To work around this, only synthesize those leaves if 0x8000001d exists
on the host. The synthetic 0x80000021 leaf is mostly useful on Zen2,
which satisfies the condition.
