In VSIE the patch activates stfl(11) only if the host has stfl(11).

I do not see any problem to activate the interpretation in VSIE with 
ECB_PTF (ECB.7) when the host has stfl(11) and QEMU asks to enable it 
for the guest using the CAPABILITY as it is done in this patch.

if any intermediary hypervizor decide to not advertize stfl(11) for the 
guest like an old QEMU not having the CAPABILITY, or a QEMU with 
ctop=off, KVM will not set ECB_PTF and the PTF instruction will trigger 
a program check as before.

Is it OK or did I missed something?
