When building without AVX2 support using an older compiler e.g. gcc 4.8
on Centos/RHEL 7, we get build errors due to the use of AVX2 intrinsics.
This is because the compiler does not support
"__attribute__((target(AVX2)))" function attribute. Disable build of
this driver such edge cases.

Generic builds using recent compilers, and all builds with a minimum
baseline of AVX2 are unaffected by this change.

Fixes: aa802b10237c ("dma/idxd: fix AVX2 in non-datapath functions")

Tested env as below:
OS: CentOS7.9/kernel: 3.10.0-1160.62.1.el7.x86_64
Compiler: gcc version 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-44) (GCC)

Best regards,
Yu Jiang
