We unconditionally set the HW_AFDBM capability and only enable it on
CPUs which really have the feature. But sometimes we need to know
whether this cpu has the capability of HW AF. So decouple AF from
DBM by new helper cpu_has_hw_af().

We could do with a better comment here or just remove it altogether. The
aim of the patch was to decouple AF check from the AF+DBM but the
comment here should describe what the function does. Maybe something
like: "Check whether hardware update of the Access flag is supported".

Other than the comment above,
