Subject: [PATCH v8 5/5] x86/xsave: Remove the explicit clearing of XSAVE dependend features

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Clearing a CPU feature with setup_clear_cpu_cap() clears all features
which depend on it. Expressing feature dependencies in one place is
easier to maintain than keeping functions like
fpu__xstate_clear_all_cpu_caps() up to date.

The features which depend on XSAVE have their dependency expressed in the
dependency table, so its sufficient to clear X86_FEATURE_XSAVE.

Remove the explicit clearing of XSAVE dependend features.

v2: Use Thomas Gleixner's new description
