This can go in common x86 code, e.g. if someone wants to run an AMD VM on Intel
Side topic, in the context of this series, the below diff highlights how silly it
is for PSFD to be banished from cpufeatures.h. While we have Boris's attention
(and ACK!), can you tack on a patch to move drop KVM_X86_FEATURE_PSFD and move the
bit to cpufeatures.h where it belongs?
