Subject[PATCH 0/2] x86: Enumerate direct stores instructions
Date
Direct stores instructionis MOVDIRI and MOVDIR64B will be available in
Tremont and other future x86 processors.

This patch set enumerates the instructions through CPUID.

GCC 8 implements intrinsics for the direct stores instructions.
User can try these instructions from GCC tree:
https://gcc.gnu.org/git/?p=gcc.git;a=summary
Before running the instructions, user needs to check availability of
the features by CPUID, or /proc/cpuinfo, etc.

Detailed information on the instructions and the MSR can be found in
the latest Intel Architecture Instruction Set Extensions and Future
Features Programming Reference at
https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/c5/15/architecture-instruction-set-extensions-programming-reference.pdf

Please note: this patch set was sent out with umonitor/umwait/tpause
instructions patches before. But since we find the other patches are not
fully ready yet, this time these direct stores instructions patches are
sent out separately.
