Description

We need the ability to do cpuid detection for various CPU security features such as IPBP, etc.

As part of testing 9745 I went through and used the ::x86_featureset dmod to see changes to the feature set took place indicating that we newly detected the features that we added support for. At this time the hardware and microcode we had only supports a subset of the new features so it was not possible to test them all.
