The patch is necessary.  However, ARCH_CAPABILITIES is not needed in
kvm_msr.  It is retrieved with KVM_GET_MSR on the *virtual machine* file
descriptor, while kvm_msr is for the KVM_GET/SET_MSR on the *vCPU* file

You still need to do KVM_SET_MSR on each vCPU when it is initialized;
however, that is done separately from the other MSRs.
