[PATCH 4.14 127/140] x86/speculation: Move firmware_restrict_branch_speculation_*() from C to CPP




4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit d72f4e29e6d84b7ec02ae93088aa459ac70e733b upstream.

firmware_restrict_branch_speculation_*() recently started using
preempt_enable()/disable(), but those are relatively high level
primitives and cause build failures on some 32-bit builds.

Since we want to keep <asm/nospec-branch.h> low level, convert
them to macros to avoid header hell...
