SubjectSupport generic disabling of all XSAVE features
Date
For performance testing and debugging it can be useful to disable XSAVE
features individually.

This patchkit hooks up XSAVE with the generic clearcpuid=... option,
so that disabling a CPUID feature automatically disables the respective
XSAVE feature.

It also cleans up CPUID dependency management. Currently it's
possible to generate configurations with cleacpuid that crash.

It replaces an earlier patchkit that did this with special
case options.
