Prior to this commit GCC -O2 generated quite bad code for this
function:

bool f()
{
    return __builtin_cpu_supports("popcnt")
        && __builtin_cpu_supports("ssse3");
}

f:
        movl    __cpu_model+12(%rip), %eax
        xorl    %r8d, %r8d
        testb   $4, %al
        je      .L1
        shrl    $6, %eax
        movl    %eax, %r8d
        andl    $1, %r8d
.L1:
        movl    %r8d, %eax
        ret

The problem was caused by the fact that internally every invocation
of __builtin_cpu_supports built a new variable __cpu_model and a new
type __processor_model. Because of this GIMPLE level optimizers
weren't able to CSE the loads of __cpu_model and optimize
bit-operations properly.

This commit fixes the problem by caching created __cpu_model
variable and __processor_model type. Now the GCC -O2 generates:

f:
        movl    __cpu_model+12(%rip), %eax
        andl    $68, %eax
        cmpl    $68, %eax
        sete    %al
        ret

gcc/ChangeLog:

	PR target/91400
	* config/i386/i386-builtins.c (fold_builtin_cpu): Extract
	building of __cpu_model and __processor_model into new
	function.
	* config/i386/i386-builtins.c (init_cpu_model_var): New.
	Cache creation of __cpu_model and __processor_model.

gcc/testsuite/Changelog:

	PR target/91400
	* gcc.target/i386/pr91400.c: New.

As GCC 11 is released and the development of GCC 12 begins I would like
to send this patch again.

It is basically unchanged since the previous submission in February. The 
only change I made is fixing formatting by adding a space after gcc_assert.

Please note, that the original author of the code no longer actively 
contribute to GCC, so he is unlikely to review this patch. It would be 
great if someone else takes a look at it.

The patch looks good, the function could need a comment
and the global variables better names, not starting with __

Up to the x86 maintainers - HJ, can you pick up this work?

Thanks,
Richard.
