This absolutely shouldn't be separated from patch 7/7.  By _defining_ the static
calls but not providing the logic to actually _update_ the calls, it's entirely
possible to add static_call() invocations that will compile cleanly without any
chance of doing the right thing at runtime.

I don't want to proliferate the pointless and bitrot-prone KVM_X86_OP_NULL macro,
just omit this.  I'll send a patch to drop KVM_X86_OP_NULL.
