x86/cpufeatures: Enumerate MOVDIR64B instruction

MOVDIR64B moves 64-bytes as direct-store with 64-bytes write atomicity.
Direct store is implemented by using write combining (WC) for writing
data directly into memory without caching the data.

In low latency offload (e.g. Non-Volatile Memory, etc), MOVDIR64B writes
work descriptors (and data in some cases) to device-hosted work-queues
atomically without cache pollution.

Availability of the MOVDIR64B instruction is indicated by the
presence of the CPUID feature flag MOVDIR64B (CPUID.0x07.0x0:ECX[bit 28]).

Please check the latest Intel Architecture Instruction Set Extensions
and Future Features Programming Reference for more details on the CPUID
feature MOVDIR64B flag.
