[libvirt] [PATCH v2] qemu: Add check for whether KVM nesting is enabled



Support for nested KVM is handled via a kernel module configuration
adjustment which if done after libvirtd is started and/or the last
QEMU capabilities adjustment can result in the inability to start a
guest and use nested KVM until the capabilities cache is invalidated.
This is because without knowing, the CPU settings for a guest may not
add the vmx=on to/for the guest config.

Thus, let's fetch and save the setting during initialization and then
when the capabilities are checked for various host related adjustments
that could affect whether the capabilities cache is updated add a check
whether the nested value was set for Intel, AMD, or s390 to force a
refetch of the capabilities.

 v1 was part of an RFC:

 https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2018-November/msg00494.html

 This patch alters that code slightly to add the check Marc Hartmayer
 requested for S390 and to use "kvm" in the API names and variables to
 make it clearer that it's not CapsIsNested but CapsKVMIsNested.

 If it's felt the new check should slide down further in virQEMUCapsIsValid
 then that's fine - just let me know what it should follow.
