x86/cpufeature: Enable RING3MWAIT for Knights Landing



Enable ring 3 MONITOR/MWAIT for Intel Xeon Phi x200 codenamed Knights
Landing.

Presence of this feature cannot be detected automatically (by reading any
other MSR) therefore it is required to explicitly check for the family and
model of the CPU before attempting to enable it.
