Series ld.so: Add --list-tunables to print tunable values | expand

Tunable values and their minimum/maximum values are invisible to users.
This patch set adds --list-tunables to ld.so to print tunable values
with their minimum and maximum values.  For these tunables whose values
and minimum/maximum values are determinted at run-time, TUNABLE_SET_ALL
and TUNABLE_SET_ALL_FULL are added to update tunable values together with
their minimum and maximum values.  

--list-tunables works on i686 and x86-64.  Please test --list-tunables on
your native processors.  users/hjl/tunable/master branch at:


contains the same set of patches.

On x86, to make cache info accessible to --list-tunables, they are moved
to cpu_features in ld.so and initialized by dummy function pointers via
IFUNC relocation.  CPU features are initialized by DL_PLATFORM_INIT in
dynamic executable and by ARCH_INIT_CPU_FEATURES in static executable.
To initialize CPU features when loading ld.so inside of static executable,
where DL_PLATFORM_INIT isn't called, CPU features are also initialized by
dummy function pointers via IFUNC relocation.
