To identify the x86 CPU and use that as a match for binding PECI drivers.

Everything that's part of this series runs on the BMC (Baseboard Management
Controller). There's nothing ARM specific to it - it's just that the BMC
hardware we're currently supporting is ARM-based.
PECI is an interface that's exposed by some x86 CPUs - but that's a hardware
interface (available completely independent from whatever is actually running on
the x86 CPU).

That also runs on BMC, it uses functionality offered by peci-cpu to expose hwmon
interface to userspace.
Userspace that makes use of that hwmon interface also runs on the BMC and
exposes sensor data to user (via redfish API, or web-based interface).

I'm sorry - it looks that my description in the cover letter wasn't clear
enough.
