Dropping Cannon Lake support is only of any incremental benefit if we
drop it from everywhere, and I didn't mean to block this single patch on it.

Consider either A-by.

However, it would be helpful to consider what we could do for better
KCONFIG-able CPU support.

Some downstreams have a separate build for each platform, and some go as
far as cramming Xen into the boot SPI ROM, so space saving is a very
important aspect.

On a different front, being able to compile out support for CPUs without
VMX unrestricted mode, or without CMPXCHG16B would be helpful.

I would certainly like to get CONFIG_{INTEL,AMD} usable even if only so
randconfig can help keep our interfaces clean.
