    x86/spec-ctrl: Yet more fixes for xpti= parsing
   
    As it currently stands, 'xpti=dom0' is indistinguishable from the default
    value, which means it will be overridden by ARCH_CAPABILITIES_RDCL_NO on fixed
    hardware.
   
    Switch opt_xpti to use -1 as a default like all our other related options, and
    clobber it as soon as we have a string to parse.
   
    In addition, 'xpti' alone should be interpreted in its positive boolean form,
    rather than resulting in a parse error.
   
      (XEN) parameter "xpti" has invalid value "", rc=-22!
