x86/smp: Add a per-cpu view of SMT state

A new field smt_active in cpuinfo_x86 identifies if the current core/cpu
is in SMT mode or not. This can be very helpful if the system has some
of its cores with threads offlined and can be used for cases where
action is taken based on the state of SMT. The follow up patches use
this feature.
