kvm: x86/cpuid: Only provide CPUID leaf 0xA if host has architectural PMU

On some x86 processors, CPUID leaf 0xA provides information
on Architectural Performance Monitoring features. It
advertises a PMU version which Qemu uses to determine the
availability of additional MSRs to manage the PMCs.

Upon receiving a KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID ioctl request for
the same, the kernel constructs return values based on the
x86_pmu_capability irrespective of the vendor.

This leaf and the additional MSRs are not supported on AMD
and Hygon processors. If AMD PerfMonV2 is detected, the PMU
version is set to 2 and guest startup breaks because of an
attempt to access a non-existent MSR. Return zeros to avoid
