If available, enable key protection for the MEM_OP ioctl, thereby
enabling it for the s390_cpu_virt_mem_* functions, when using kvm.

Ah, so KVM_CAP_S390_MEM_OP_EXTENSION is a "version number", not a boolean flag? 
... ok, now I've finally understood that ... ;-)

Yeah, potentially having a bunch of memop capabilities didn't seem nice to me.
We can remove extensions if, when introducing an extension, we define that 
version x supports functionality y, z...,
but for the storage keys I've written in api.rst that it's supported if the cap 
> 0.
So we'd need a new cap if we want to get rid of the skey extension and still 
support some other extension,
but that doesn't seem particularly likely.

Oh well, never say that ... we've seen it in the past, that sometimes we want to get rid of features again, and if they don't have a separate feature flag bit somewhere, it's getting very ugly to disable them again.

So since we don't have merged this patch yet, and thus we don't have a public userspace program using this interface yet, this is our last chance to redefine this interface before we might regret it later.

I'm in strong favor of treating the KVM_CAP_S390_MEM_OP_EXTENSION as a flag field instead of a version number. What do others think? Christian? Halil?
