s390 has a non-empty kvm_arch_sync_dirty_log() but doesn't select
CONFIG_KVM_GENERIC_DIRTYLOG_READ_PROTECT.  Patch 11/13 moves s390's call
of kvm_arch_sync_dirty_log() from s390's kvm_vm_ioctl_get_dirty_log() into
the common (but not "generic") kvm_get_dirty_log() so that it's obvious
that kvm_vm_ioctl_get_dirty_log() and kvm_get_dirty_log() are operating on
the same memslot, i.e. aren't independently querying id_to_memslot().

I originally made kvm_arch_sync_dirty_log() opt-in with a __KVM_HAVE_ARCH
macro, but the resulting #ifdeffery felt uglier than having PPC and ARM
provide empty functions.
