I submit, that after the generic XFD support is in place,
there is exactly 1 bit that needs to be flipped to enable
user applications to benefit from AMX.

I submit the patch that knows about AMX and double checks the
state size is superfluous.

I submit that updating /proc/cpuinfo is superfluous.

What AMX-specific kernel enabling did I miss?

Please share the specifics about what performance or power issue you anticipate.
