    x86/spec-ctrl: Fix the parsing of xpti= on fixed Intel hardware
   
    The calls to xpti_init_default() in parse_xpti() are buggy.  The CPUID data
    hasn't been fetched that early, and boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_ARCH_CAPS) will
    always evaluate false.
   
    As a result, the default case won't disable XPTI on Intel hardware which
    advertises ARCH_CAPABILITIES_RDCL_NO.
   
    Simplify parse_xpti() to solely the setting of opt_xpti according to the
    passed string, and have init_speculation_mitigations() call
    xpti_init_default() if appropiate.  Drop the force parameter, and pass caps
    instead, to avoid redundant re-reading of MSR_ARCH_CAPS.
