AVX512 was disabled for GCC because of Bugzilla issue 97 [1],
the GCC defect submitted for the issue [2] highlighted that this is
a known binutils version 2.30 issue.

Narrowed the scope of no-avx512 to the this specific binutils version.

    We need similar check for meson which is missing right now.

v2:
* Added warning message (print only once for eal)
* Moved decision details to compat file, kept execution in cpuflags
