A new CPUID bit CPUID.07H.0H.EDX[11](RTM_ALWAYS_ABORT) will be enumerated,
which is set to indicate to updated software that the loaded microcode is
forcing RTM abort.

1. Add RTM_ALWAYS_ABORT to CPUID features.
2. Set RTM usable only if RTM_ALWAYS_ABORT isn't set.
3. Check RTM feature, instead of usability, against /proc/cpuinfo.

This fixes BZ #28033.

Maybe not that this fixes the string/tst-memchr-rtm etc. test cases
after a microcde update?

I think this means “Transactions always abort, making RTM unusable.”
(with unusable in both senses, !CPU_FEATURE_USABLE, and not useful).

Is some change necessary to copy RTM_ALWAYS_ABORT to USABLE as well?

Any idea why the microcode update doesn't just clear the RPM bit in
CPUID?  This is a bit awkward.

Thanks,
Florian
