Subject: [PATCH 0/18] v4 multi-die/package topology support

This patch series does 4 things.

1. Parse the new CPUID.1F leaf to discover multi-die/package topology

2. Export multi-die topology inside the kernel

3. Update 4 places (coretemp, pkgtemp, rapl, perf) that that need to know
   the difference between die and package-scope MSR.

4. Export multi-die topology to user-space via sysfs

These changes should have 0 impact on cache topology,
NUMA topology, Linux scheduler, or system performance.

These topology changes primarily impact parts of the kernel
and some applications that care about package MSR scope.
Also, some software is licensed per package, and other tools,
such as benchmark reporting software sometimes cares about packages.

Updates since v3:


Earlier today I sent the correct v3 e-mail header, pointing to the
correct git branch, but ran git-send-email from the wrong directory
and it happily spammed you with a copy of the old 14-patch v1 series.
Sorry about that!

Updates since v2:

All review feedback has been addressed.

In response to brice, peterz and Morten Rasmussen,
used the word "cpu" rather than "thread" for the new sysfs attributes.

In response to tglx, replaced access to cpuinfo_x86.x86_max_dies,
with macro topology_max_die_per_package().  In doing so,
deleted this new per-cpu field entirely, as a global is sufficient.

Also, appended 3 patches from Kan Liang, updating the perf code
to be multi-die aware.  These patches are similar to the preceding
power and temperature patches.  I believe that with these patches,
this series now includes all needed multi-die kernel support.

The following changes since commit 085b7755808aa11f78ab9377257e1dad2e6fa4bb:
