[PATCH v6 5/6] arm64/kvm: control accessibility of ptrauth key registers

From: Amit Daniel Kachhap
Date: Tue Feb 19 2019 - 04:25:32 EST

According to userspace settings, ptrauth key registers are conditionally
present in guest system register list based on user specified flag

Reset routines still sets these registers to default values but they are
left like that as they are conditionally accessible (set/get).

This patch needs patch [1] by Dave Martin and adds feature to manage accessibility in a scalable way.
