I still don't much like the name; how about arch_simd_state ? Also,
since we're printing an integer, I still prefer we go print the turbo
license level. I know level 1 isn't too interesting atm, but consider
future hardware widening the thing again and us growing level 3 or
something.

Also; you were going to shop around with the other architectures to see
what they want/need for this interface. I see nothing on that.
