x86, amd: Restrict usage of c1e_idle()

Currently c1e_idle returns true for all CPUs greater than or equal to
family 0xf model 0x40. This covers too many CPUs.

Meanwhile a respective erratum for the underlying problem was filed
(#400). This patch adds the logic to check whether erratum #400
applies to a given CPU.
Especially for CPUs where SMI/HW triggered C1e is not supported,
c1e_idle() doesn't need to be used. We can check this by looking at
the respective OSVW bit for erratum #400.
