  If full width writes to the performance monitoring counters are
  supported, use full-width aliases MSRs for writes.  This fixes the
  "[pmc,X] negative increment" assertion on the context switch when
  clipped counter value is sign-extended.

  Add definitions for the MSR IA32_PERF_CAPABILITIES needed to detect
  the feature.
