Subject[PATCH 23/27] x86: debugctlmsr kconfig

This adds the (internal) Kconfig macro CONFIG_X86_DEBUGCTLMSR,
to be defined when configuring to support only hardware that
definitely supports MSR_IA32_DEBUGCTLMSR with the BTF flag.

The Intel documentation says "P6 family" and later processors all have it.
I think the Kconfig dependencies are right to have it set for those and
unset for others (i.e., when 586 and earlier are supported).
