Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] x86/fpu: Add helper function for tracking AVX512 status

This commit adds a new helper function 'fpu_update_avx_timestamp' to
perform the logic from tracking AVX512 feature use.

Signed-off-by: Noah Goldstein <goldstein.w.n@...il.com>
---
Since Borislav Petkov is concerned about adding more macro masks and
inlining the AVX512 status this patch adds a new helper function. This
patch does not change the behavior of the current AVX512 status.
