Subject[PATCH] x86/fpu: Warn only when CPU-provided sizes less than struct declaration
The current XCHECK_SZ macro warns if the XFEATURE size reported
by CPUID does not match the size of kernel structure. However, depending
on the hardware implementation, CPUID can report the XSAVE state size
larger than the size of C structures defined for each of the XSAVE state
due to padding. Such case should be safe and should not need to generate
warning message.

Therefore, change the logic to warn only when the CPUID reported size is
less than then size of C structure.
