    x86/cpu: undo BIOS CPUID max_leaf limit before querying for features
    If IA32_MISC_ENABLE[22] is set by the BIOS, CPUID.0.EAX will be limited to 
    Lift this limit before considering whether to query CPUID.7[ECX=0].EBX for
    Without this change, dom0 is able to see this feature leaf (as the limit was
    subsequently lifted), and will set features appropriately in HVM domain 
    The specific bug XenServer observed was the advertisement of the FSGSBASE
    feature, but an inability to set CR4.FSGSBASE as Xen considered the bit to 
    reserved as cpu_has_fsgsbase incorrectly evaluated as false.
    This is a regression introduced by c/s 44e24f8567 "x86: don't call
    generic_identify() redundantly" where the redundant call actually resampled
    CPUID.7[ECX=0] properly to obtain the feature flags.
