I suspect an ifdef will be useless, since things like distro kernels
tend to enable everything.

So it should probably be disabled dynamically, and only done if the
AMD memory encryption thing has actually been active.

[ There have also been various actual errata with wbinvd, so there
tends to be a non-performance reason to try to avoid it unless
strictly required ]
