    x86-64: Use fxsave/xsave/xsavec in _dl_runtime_resolve [BZ #21265]

    In _dl_runtime_resolve, use fxsave/xsave/xsavec to preserve all vector,
    mask and bound registers.  It simplifies _dl_runtime_resolve and supports
    different calling conventions. code size is reduced by more than
    1 KB.  However, use fxsave/xsave/xsavec takes a little bit more cycles
    than saving and restoring vector and bound registers individually.

    Latency for _dl_runtime_resolve to lookup the function, foo, from one
    shared library plus

                                 Before    After     Change

    Westmere (SSE)/fxsave         345      866       151%
    IvyBridge (AVX)/xsave         420      643       53%
    Haswell (AVX)/xsave           713      1252      75%
    Skylake (AVX+MPX)/xsavec      559      719       28%
    Skylake (AVX512+MPX)/xsavec   145      272       87%
    Ryzen (AVX)/xsavec            280      553       97%

    This is the worst case where portion of time spent for saving and
    restoring registers is bigger than majority of cases.  With smaller
    _dl_runtime_resolve code size, overall performance impact is negligible.

    On IvyBridge, differences in build and test time of binutils with lazy
    binding GCC and binutils are noises.  On Westmere, differences in
    bootstrap and "makc check" time of GCC 7 with lazy binding GCC and
    binutils are also noises.

    x86: Add x86_64 to x86-64 HWCAP [BZ #22093]

    Before glibc 2.26, set dl_platform to "x86_64" and searched the
    "x86_64" subdirectory when loading a shared library. in glibc
    2.26 was changed to set dl_platform to "haswell" or "xeon_phi", based
    on supported ISAs.  This led to shared library loading failure for
    shared libraries placed under the "x86_64" subdirectory.

    This patch adds "x86_64" to x86-64 dl_hwcap so that will always
    search the "x86_64" subdirectory when loading a shared library.

    NB: We can't set x86-64 dl_platform to "x86-64" since will skip
    the "haswell" and "xeon_phi" subdirectories on "haswell" and "xeon_phi"

    Tested on i686 and x86-64.

        [BZ #22093]
        * sysdeps/x86/cpu-features.c (init_cpu_features): Initialize
        GLRO(dl_hwcap) to HWCAP_X86_64 for x86-64.
        * sysdeps/x86/dl-hwcap.h (HWCAP_COUNT): Updated.
        (HWCAP_IMPORTANT): Likewise.
        (HWCAP_X86_64): New enum.
        (HWCAP_X86_AVX512_1): Updated.
        * sysdeps/x86/dl-procinfo.c (_dl_x86_hwcap_flags): Add "x86_64".
        * sysdeps/x86_64/Makefile (tests): Add tst-x86_64-1.
        (modules-names): Add x86_64/tst-x86_64mod-1.
        ( New.
