Subject: [PATCH v3 1/2] x86/CPU: Modify detect_extended_topology() to return result

Current implementation does not communicate whether it can successfully
detect CPUID Fn0x0000000B information. Therefore, modify the function
to return success or error codes. This will be used by subsequent patches.
