Good idea.

Tony, Babu, that look okay to you guys as well?

Subject: [PATCH] x86: 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.
