Subject[PATCH v7 5/6] x86/cpufeature: Detect CPUID faulting support
Date
Intel supports faulting on the CPUID instruction beginning with Ivy Bridge.
When enabled, the processor will fault on attempts to execute the CPUID
instruction with CPL>0. This will allow a ptracer to emulate the CPUID
instruction.

Bit 31 of MSR_PLATFORM_INFO advertises support for this feature. It is
documented in detail in Section 2.3.2 of
http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/application-notes/virtualization-technology-flexmigration-application-note.pdf

Detect support for this feature and expose it as X86_FEATURE_CPUID_FAULT.
