Subject: [PATCH 05/10] x86/intel_rdt: Add support for Cache Allocation detection

This patch adds support for Cache Allocation Technology feature found in
future Intel Xeon processors. Cache allocation is a sub-feature of Intel
Resource Director Technology(RDT) which enables sharing of processor
resources.  This patch includes CPUID enumeration routines for Cache
allocation and new values to track resources to the cpuinfo_x86
structure.

Cache allocation provides a way for the Software (OS/VMM) to restrict
cache allocation to a defined 'subset' of cache which may be overlapping
with other 'subsets'.  This feature is used when allocating a line in
cache ie when pulling new data into the cache.  The programming of the
hardware is done via programming  MSRs(model specific registers).

More information about Cache allocation be found in the Intel (R) x86
Architecture Software Developer Manual,Volume 3, section 17.15.

Signed-off-by: Vikas Shivappa <vikas.shivappa@...ux.intel.com>

As per Thomas and Boris feedback : 
-Changed the dmesg output when cache alloc is enabled to be more helpful
 and updated few other comments to be better readable.
