Subject: [PATCH v3 10/21] x86/fpu/xstate: Update xstate save function to support dynamic xstate

copy_xregs_to_kernel() used to save all user states in a kernel buffer.
When the dynamic user state is enabled, it becomes conditional which state to be saved.

fpu->state_mask can indicate which state components are reserved to be
saved in XSAVE buffer. Use it as XSAVE's instruction mask to select states.

KVM used to save all xstate via copy_xregs_to_kernel(). Update KVM to set a valid fpu->state_mask, which will be necessary to correctly handle dynamic state buffers.

See comments together below.

No functional change until the kernel supports dynamic user states.

For kvm, if we assume that it does not support dynamic features until this series,
memcpy for only fpu->state is correct. 
I think this kind of assumption is reasonable and we only make original xstate work.

Though dynamic feature is not supported in kvm now, this function still need
consider more things for fpu->state_mask.
I suggest that we can set it before if...else (for both cases) and not change other.
