To avoid this problem in future, this PR updates x86 and AArch64 to define CPU features with a single macro that is used to generate enum declarations as well as vmstructs entries.
>> In addition, the JVMCI API is updated to exposes the new CPU feature constants and now has a check that ensure these constants are in sync with the underlying macro definition.
