x86/resctrl: Avoid confusion over the new X86_RESCTRL config
"Resource Control" is a very broad term for this CPU feature, and a term that is also associated with containers, cgroups etc. This can easily cause confusion. Make the user prompt more specific. Match the config symbol name. [ bp: In the future, the corresponding ARM arch-specific code will be under ARM_CPU_RESCTRL and the arch-agnostic bits will be carved out under the CPU_RESCTRL umbrella symbol. ] Signed-off-by: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org> Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Cc: Babu Moger <Babu.Moger@amd.com> Cc: Fenghua Yu <fenghua.yu@intel.com> Cc: "H.
