    x86/vmware: Add a header file for hypercall definitions · b4dd4f6e

    The new header is intended to be used by drivers using the backdoor.
    Follow the KVM example using alternatives self-patching to choose
    between vmcall, vmmcall and io instructions.
    
    Also define two new CPU feature flags to indicate hypervisor support
    for vmcall- and vmmcall instructions. The new XF86_FEATURE_VMW_VMMCALL
    flag is needed because using XF86_FEATURE_VMMCALL might break QEMU/KVM
    setups using the vmmouse driver. They rely on XF86_FEATURE_VMMCALL
    on AMD to get the kvm_hypercall() right. But they do not yet implement
    vmmcall for the VMware hypercall used by the vmmouse driver.
