KVM: x86/mmu: Don't freak out if pml5_root is NULL on 4-level host

Include pml5_root in the set of special roots if and only if the host,
and thus NPT, is using 5-level paging.  mmu_alloc_special_roots() expects
special roots to be allocated as a bundle, i.e. they're either all valid
or all NULL.  But for pml5_root, that expectation only holds true if the
host uses 5-level paging, which causes KVM to WARN about pml5_root being
NULL when the other special roots are valid.

The silver lining of 4-level vs. 5-level NPT being tied to the host
kernel's paging level is that KVM's shadow root level is constant; unlike
VMX's EPT, KVM can't choose 4-level NPT based on guest.MAXPHYADDR.  That
means KVM can still expect pml5_root to be bundled with the other special
roots, it just needs to be conditioned on the shadow root level.
