These patches enable Intel Xeon Phi x200 feature to use MONITOR/MWAIT
instruction in ring 3 (userspace) Patches set MSR 0x140 for all logical CPUs.
Then expose it as CPU feature and introduces elf HWCAP capability for x86.
Reference (the solution is temporary MSR definition will be in next SDM 

Check MSR before wrmsrl
Shortened names
Used Word 3 for feature init_scattered_cpuid_features()
Fixed commit messages

Included Daves and Thomas comments

Wrapped the enabling code by CONFIG_X86_64
Add documentation for phir3mwait=disable cmdline switch
Move probe_ function call from early_intel_init to intel_init
Fixed commit messages

Grzegorz Andrejczuk (4):
  x86/phi: Add R3MWAIT register and bit to msr-info.h
  x86/phi: Add enabling of the R3MWAIT during boot
  x86: Use HWCAP2 to expoose Xeon Phi ring 3 MWAIT
  x86/phi: Add R3MWAIT to CPU features
