Subject: [PATCH v11 2/3] x86,/proc/pid/status: Add AVX-512 usage elapsed time

AVX-512 components use could cause core turbo frequency drop. So
it's useful to expose AVX-512 usage elapsed time as a heuristic hint
for the user space job scheduler to cluster the AVX-512 using tasks
together.

Example:
$ cat /proc/pid/status | grep AVX512_elapsed_ms
AVX512_elapsed_ms:      1020

The number '1020' denotes 1020 millisecond elapsed since last time
context switch the off-CPU task using AVX-512 components, thus the
task could cause core frequency drop.

Or:
$ cat /proc/pid/status | grep AVX512_elapsed_ms
AVX512_elapsed_ms:      -1

The number '-1' indicates the task didn't use AVX-512 components
before thus unlikely has frequency drop issue.

User space tools may want to further check by:

$ perf stat --pid <pid> -e core_power.lvl2_turbo_license -- sleep 1

 Performance counter stats for process id '3558':

     3,251,565,961      core_power.lvl2_turbo_license

       1.004031387 seconds time elapsed

Non-zero counter value confirms that the task causes frequency drop.
