Registers a group notifier during the open of the mediated
matrix device to get information on KVM presence through the
VFIO_GROUP_NOTIFY_SET_KVM event. When notified, the pointer
to the kvm structure is saved inside the mediated matrix
device. Once the VFIO AP device driver has access to KVM,
access to the APs can be configured for the guest.

Access to APs is configured when the file descriptor for the
mediated matrix device is opened by userspace. The items to be
configured are:

1. The ECA.28 bit in the SIE state description determines whether
    AP instructions are interpreted by the hardware or intercepted.
    The VFIO AP device driver relies interpretive execution of
    AP instructions so the ECA.28 bit will be set

2. Guest access to AP adapters, usage domains and control domains
    is controlled by three bit masks referenced from the
    Crypto Control Block (CRYCB) referenced from the guest's SIE state

    * The AP Mask (APM) controls access to the AP adapters. Each bit
      in the APM represents an adapter number - from most significant
      to least significant bit - from 0 to 255. The bits in the APM
      are set according to the adapter numbers assigned to the mediated
      matrix device via its 'assign_adapter' sysfs attribute file.

    * The AP Queue (AQM) controls access to the AP queues. Each bit
      in the AQM represents an AP queue index - from most significant
      to least significant bit - from 0 to 255. A queue index references
      a specific domain and is synonymous with the domian number. The
      bits in the AQM are set according to the domain numbers assigned
      to the mediated matrix device via its 'assign_domain' sysfs
      attribute file.

    * The AP Domain Mask (ADM) controls access to the AP control domains.
      Each bit in the ADM represents a control domain - from most
      significant to least significant bit - from 0-255. The
      bits in the ADM are set according to the domain numbers assigned
      to the mediated matrix device via its 'assign_control_domain'
      sysfs attribute file.

Do you need this call ?
apie is always enabled in KVM if AP instructions are available.

Setting or not the interpretation is done for the VM in a all.
It is not the right place to do it here since open is device dependent.

Or we only have one device in the VM at a time.
In this case, shouldn't we make it official by returning -EEXIST for the second call?

This call clears the apie in KVM.
This is only OK if we have a single device present until the end of the VM,
otherwise AP instructions in the guest will fail after the release until the end of the VM
or until a new device is plugged.
