By default intel_pstate driver disables energy efficiency by setting
MSR_IA32_POWER_CTL bit 19 for Kaby Lake desktop CPU model in HWP mode.
This CPU model is also shared by Coffee Lake desktop CPUs. This allows
these systems to reach maximum possible frequency. But this adds power
penalty, which some customers don't want. They want some way to enable/
disable dynamically.

So, add an additional attribute "energy_efficiency_enable" under
/sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/ for these CPU models. This allows
to read and write bit 19 ("Disable Energy Efficiency Optimization") in
the MSR IA32_POWER_CTL.

This attribute is present in both HWP and non-HWP mode as this has an
effect in both modes. Refer to Intel Software Developer's manual for
details. The scope of this bit is package wide.
