$ rpm -q gcc
gcc-7.1.1-3.fc26.ppc64le

The compiler should obviously optimize this code away when no extra
agument is passed to kvm_vm_enable_cap() and kvm_vcpu_enable_cap(),
but it doesn't. This bug should be fixed one day in gcc, but we can
also change our code pattern so that we don't hit the issue anymore.
We workaround this, by using memcpy() instead of open-coding the copy.

v2: - use memcpy()
