[RFC PATCH 15/20] x86/intel_rdt: Prevent new allocations from pseudo-locked regions




When a user requests a new cache allocation we need to enforce that it
does not intersect with an existing pseudo-locked region. An allocation
with a bitmask intersection with a pseudo-locked region will enable
cache allocations to that region and thus evict pseudo-locked data.
