At the moment the KVM VGICv3 only supports a single redistributor
region (whose base address is set through the GICv3 kvm device
KVM_DEV_ARM_VGIC_GRP_ADDR/KVM_VGIC_V3_ADDR_TYPE_REDIST). There,
all the redistributors are laid out contiguously. The size of this
single redistributor region is not set explicitly but instead
induced at a late stage by the number of online vcpus.

The GIC specification does not mandate all redistributors to be
contiguous. Moreover DT and ACPI were specified so that multiple
redistributors regions can be defined.

The current interface brings a limitation on QEMU where ARM
virt machine available GPA holes only allowed to assign a
redistributor region fitting a max of 123 vcpus. Overcoming this
limitation would force either to create a new machine or relocate
the single rdist region or allow the allocation of multiple rdist
regions.

This series enables this last alternative. A new GICv3 KVM device
KVM_DEV_ARM_VGIC_GRP_ADDR/KVM_VGIC_V3_ADDR_TYPE_REDIST_REGION allows
to register individual redistributor regions whose size is defined
explicitly. Those rdist regions then are filled by vcpu rdist frames
according to the need. The vgic init and related base address checks
are impacted.

https://github.com/eauger/linux/tree/v4.16-rdist-regions-v3
Previous version:
https://github.com/eauger/linux/tree/4.16-rc7-rdist-regions-rfc-v2

History:

v2 -> v3:
- Add details to the user API documentation
- early exit if vgic_v3_rdist_region_from_index() fails
- return -EINVAL if legacy and new redist region API are mixed

v1 -> v2:
- Rework the uapi. Only bits [51:16] of the redist region are
  exposed. Also a new flags field was introduced
- Do not store the last bit in the vgic_cpu struct anymore
- remove dist->spis check in 1st patch
- add last patch to bump VGIC_V3_MAX_CPUS to 512
- advertise the new attribute
