KVM: arm64: Fix caching of host MDCR_EL2 value
At boot time, KVM stashes the host MDCR_EL2 value, but only does this when the kernel is not running in hyp mode (i.e. is non-VHE). In these cases, the stashed value of MDCR_EL2.HPMN happens to be zero, which can lead to CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE behaviour. Since we use this value to derive the MDCR_EL2 value when switching to/from a guest, after a guest have been run, the performance counters do not behave as expected. This has been observed to result in accesses via PMXEVTYPER_EL0 and PMXEVCNTR_EL0 not affecting the relevant counters, resulting in events not being counted. In these cases, only the fixed-purpose cycle counter appears to work as expected. Fix this by always stashing the host MDCR_EL2 value, regardless of VHE.
