Subject[PATCH 04/11] x86/intel_rdt: Add support for Cache Allocation detection
Date
This patch includes CPUID enumeration routines for Cache allocation and
new values to track resources to the cpuinfo_x86 structure.

Cache allocation provides a way for the Software (OS/VMM) to restrict
cache allocation to a defined 'subset' of cache which may be overlapping
with other 'subsets'. This feature is used when allocating a line in
cache ie when pulling new data into the cache. The programming of the
hardware is done via programming MSRs (model specific registers).
