Ok, I see ...

QEMU knows the facility and as soon as we present it to QEMU, QEMU will 
want to automatically enable it in the "host" model.

However, we'd like QEMU to join in and handle some part of it.

So indeed, handling it like KVM_CAP_S390_VECTOR_REGISTERS or 
KVM_CAP_S390_RI looks like a reasonable approach.

This sounds quite nice to me. Implement minimal kernel support and 
indicate the facility via stfl to user space.

In addition, add a new capability that intercepts to user space instead.


... but I can understand that it might not be worth it.


This patch as it stands doesn't make any sense on its own. Either 
document how it's supposed to work and why it is currently dead code, or 
simply squash into the next patch (preferred IMHO).
