Subject: [PATCH v3 4/5] x86/umwait: Add sysfs interface to control umwait maximum time

IA32_UMWAIT_CONTROL[31:2] determines the maximum time in TSC-quanta
that processor can stay in C0.1 or C0.2. A zero value means no maximum
time.

Each instruction sets its own deadline in the instruction's implicit
input EDX:EAX value. The instruction wakes up if the time-stamp counter
reaches or exceeds the specified deadline, or the umwait maximum time
expires, or a store happens in the monitored address range in umwait.

Users can write an unsigned 32-bit number to
/sys/devices/system/cpu/umwait_control/max_time to change the default
value. Note that a value of zero means there is no limit. Low order
two bits are ignored.
