x86/fpu/xstate: Keep init_fpstate.xsave.header.xfeatures as zero for init optimization

Keep init_fpstate.xsave.header.xfeatures as zero for init optimization.
This is important for init optimization that is implemented in processor.
If a bit corresponding to an xstate in xstate_bv is 0, it means the
xstate is in init status and will not be read from memory to the processor
during XRSTOR/XRSTORS instruction. This largely impacts context switch
performance.
