[PATCH 1/2] x86/speculation: Change STIPB to STIBP




STIBP stands for Single Thread Indirect Branch Predictors. The acronym,
however, can be easily mis-spelled as STIPB. It is perhaps due to the
presence of another related term - IBPB (Indirect Branch Predictor
Barrier).

Fix the mis-spelling in the code.
