The Autoconf documentation for the AC_CACHE_CHECK macro states:

  The commands-to-set-it must have no side effects except for setting
  the variable cache-id, see below.

However, the tests for support of -msahf and -mmovbe were embedded in
the commands-to-set-it for lib_cv_include_x86_isa_level. This had the
consequence that libc_cv_have_x86_lahf_sahf and libc_cv_have_x86_movbe
were not defined whenever lib_cv_include_x86_isa_level was read from
cache. These variables' being undefined meant that their unquoted use
in later test expressions led to the 'test' built-in's misparsing its
arguments and emitting errors like "test: =: unexpected operator" or
"test: =: unary operator expected", depending on the particular shell.

This commit refactors the tests for LAHF/SAHF and MOVBE instruction
support into their own AC_CACHE_CHECK macro invocations to obey the
rule that the commands-to-set-it must have no side effects other than
setting the variable named by cache-id.
