Subject: [PATCH v7 03/10] x86, mpx: add macro cpu_has_mpx

In order to do performance optimization, this patch adds macro
cpu_has_mpx which will directly return 0 when MPX is not supported
by kernel.

Community gave a lot of comments on this macro cpu_has_mpx in previous
version. Dave will introduce a patchset about disabled features to fix
it later.

In this code:
        if (cpu_has_mpx)
                do_some_mpx_thing();

The patch series from Dave will introduce a new macro cpu_feature_enabled()
(if merged after this patchset) to replace the cpu_has_mpx.
        if (cpu_feature_enabled(X86_FEATURE_MPX))
                do_some_mpx_thing();
