Subject: [PATCH V4 3/4] x86/resctrl: Enable per-thread MBA

From: Fenghua Yu <fenghua.yu@...el.com>

Current Memory Bandwidth Allocation (MBA) hardware has a limitation:
all threads on the same core must have the same delay value. If there
are different delay values across threads on one core, the original
MBA implementation allocates the max delay value to the core and an
updated implementation allocates either min or max delay value specified
by a configuration MSR across threads on the core.

Newer systems support per-thread MBA such that each thread is allocated
with its own delay value.

If per-thread MBA is supported, report "per-thread" in resctrl file
"info/MB/thread_throttle_mode" to let user applications know memory
bandwidth is allocated per thread and help them fine tune MBA on thread
level.

Changes since V3:
- Use new thread throttling mode property.
- Remove unnecessary empty line. (Babu)
