KVM has two bugs in the handling of MSR_IA32_ARCH_CAPABILITIES:

1) Linux commit commit 1eaafe91a0df ("kvm: x86: IA32_ARCH_CAPABILITIES
   is always supported") makes GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID return
   arch_capabilities even if running on SVM.  This makes "-cpu
   host,migratable=off" incorrectly expose arch_capabilities on CPUID on
   AMD hosts (where the MSR is not emulated by KVM).

2) KVM_GET_MSR_INDEX_LIST does not return MSR_IA32_ARCH_CAPABILITIES if
   the MSR is not supported by the host CPU.  This makes QEMU not
   initialize the MSR properly at kvm_put_msrs() on those hosts.

Work around both bugs on the QEMU side, by checking if the MSR
was returned by KVM_GET_MSR_INDEX_LIST before returning the
feature flag on kvm_arch_get_supported_cpuid().

This has the unfortunate side effect of making arch_capabilities
unavailable on hosts without hardware support for the MSR until bug #2
is fixed on KVM, but I can't see another way to work around bug #1
without that side effect.
