    x86/cmdline: Introduce a command line option to disable IBRS/IBPB, STIBP and IBPB
   
    Instead of gaining yet another top level boolean, introduce a more generic
    cpuid= option.  Also introduce a helper function to parse a generic boolean
    value.
   
    This is part of XSA-254.

    xen/cmdline: Fix parse_boolean() for unadorned values
   
    A command line such as "cpuid=no-ibrsb,no-stibp" tickles a bug in
    parse_boolean() because the separating comma fails the NUL case.
   
    Instead, check for slen == nlen which accounts for the boundary (if any)
    passed via the 'e' parameter.

+This option allows for fine tuning of the facilities Xen will use, after
+accounting for hardware capabilities as enumerated via CPUID.

+The Speculation Control hardware features `ibrsb`, `stibp`, `ibpb` are used by

+won't use them itself, and won't offer them to guests.
