turbostat: Use GCC's CPUID functions to support PIC
commit 2b92865e648ce04a39fda4f903784a5d01ecb0dc upstream. turbostat uses inline assembly to call cpuid. On 32-bit x86, on systems that have certain security features enabled by default that make -fPIC the default, this causes a build error: turbostat.c: In function ‘check_cpuid’: turbostat.c:1906:2: error: PIC register clobbered by ‘ebx’ in ‘asm’ asm("cpuid" : "=a" (fms), "=c" (ecx), "=d" (edx) : "a" (1) : "ebx"); ^ GCC provides a header cpuid.h, containing a __get_cpuid function that works with both PIC and non-PIC. (On PIC, it saves and restores ebx around the cpuid instruction.) Use that instead.
