Subject[X86] Remove unnecessary code in 64bit CPU identification.
There were no 64bit Transmeta CPUs made (and it'd be something of
a surprise if they started any time soon). To the best of my knowledge,
no CPU vendor cloned the 80860000 cpuid space claimed by Transmeta.
By removing this code, we can also eliminate calling cpuid 0x80000007 twice.
