x86: add NOPL as a synthetic CPU feature bit
The long noops ("NOPL") are supposed to be detected by family >= 6. Unfortunately, several non-Intel x86 implementations, both hardware and software, don't obey this dictum. Instead, probe for NOPL directly by executing a NOPL instruction and see if we get #UD. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
