Even though we might not allow the guest to use WAITPKG's new instructions,
we should tell KVM that the feature is supported by the host CPU.

Note that vmx_waitpkg_supported checks that WAITPKG _can_ be set in the
secondary execution controls as specified by VMX capability MSR,
rather that indicate that we actually enable it for a guest.

Fixes: e69e72faa3a07 (KVM: x86: Add support for user wait instructions)
