x86: AMD core-pair topology detection code

This patch is to support core-pair topology introduced by AMD CPUs, which introduces a new concept of [core, compute unit]. There is a new feature bit for topology extension in CPUID:0x80000001. Also a new CPUID 0x8000001E is introduced for CPU topology enumeration. This patch collects the sibling information from the new CPUID and will be stored in the sibling map in Xen hypervisor.
