From: Ricardo Neri <ricardo.neri-calderon@linux.intel.com>

Processors which have self-snooping capability can handle conflicting
memory type across CPUs by snooping its own cache. However, there exists
CPU models in which having conflicting memory types still leads to
unpredictable behavior, machine check errors, or hangs.

Clear this feature on affected CPUs to prevent its use.

[Linux commit 1e03bff3600101bd9158d005e4313132e55bdec8]

Strip Yonah - as per ark.intel.com it doesn't look to be 64-bit capable.
Call the new function on the boot CPU only. Don't clear the CPU feature
flag itself, as it is exposed to guests (who could otherwise observe it
disappear after migration).

v2: Introduce and use XEN_SELFSNOOP.
---
NB: The function name isn't fully appropriate anymore, but I'd prefer to
     keep Linux'es name to allow matching the two changes.
