All soundness issues have been fixed and unsafe code is no longer used
casually. Some transmutes from raw CPUID data to structs remain, but now
with comments explaining why they are safe.

The crate has multiple soundness issues.

Most importantly, it performs transmutes that are most likely unsound or
at best incorrect (https://github.com/gz/rust-cpuid/issues/40).

Further, for machines that do not support CPUID (arguably rare, when ignoring
SGX), it incorrectly exposes the unsafe core::arch::__cpuid_count() as a safe
function. (The safety requirement is that the CPUID instruction is supported,
https://github.com/gz/rust-cpuid/issues/41).

Soundness issues aside, there are some minor issues.
