This patch is not written against speck/master (which has the TAA
patches) and there's a very minor merge conflict here.

The call to cpu_mitigations_off() causes a build failure when kvm is
built as a module (CONFIG_KVM=m):

ERROR: "cpu_mitigations" [arch/x86/kvm/kvm.ko] undefined!
make[2]: *** [__modpost] Error 1
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [sub-make] Error 2

The problem is due to cpu_mitigations_off() and
cpu_mitigations_auto_nosmt() being inlined in include/linux/cpu.h. Those
functions look to only be used in initialization/setup code so I think
you could fix this easily enough by unlining and exporting them.
