I think that fact that we set spapr->ov5 based on relevant machine
options/support being there, and the fact that this means they won't
show up in ov5_cas, is a nice thing to assert and rely on, since being
able to rely on that keeps keeps the logic throughout the code tied to
ov5/ov5_cas and avoids the need to keep re-checking things like
spapr->use_hotplug_event_source (and various other options tied to an
OV5 capability) after init time.

I think this particular case is purely the result of us violating (via
b8165118f52c) the condition that bits that aren't ever set in spapr->ov5
should never end up in spapr->ov5_cas, and losing that precondition might
make the code harder to reason about since now we have to check both
ov5_cas and the related options (rather than 1 necessarilly following
from the other).

Another approach might be to revert b8165118f52c, and then add a hook for
qtest_enabled() that does a fake CAS negotiation (which I guess would
essentially involve copying spapr->ov5 into spapr->ov5_cas). This would
maintain the flow of machine options -> spapr->ov5 -> spapr->ov5_cas and
still let qtest do it's thing (AFAICT).
