x86/boot/compressed/64: Detect and handle 5-level paging at boot-time

Prerequisite for fixing the current problem of instantaneous reboots when a
5-level paging kernel is booted on 4-level paging hardware.

At the same time this change prepares the decompression code to boot-time
switching between 4- and 5-level paging.

[ tglx: Folded the GCC < 5 fix. ]

Fixes: 77ef56e4f0fb ("x86: Enable 5-level paging support via CONFIG_X86_5LEVEL=y")
