[PATCH 4.4 204/266] x86/speculation: Move STIPB/IBPB string conditionals out of cpu_show_common()

From: Tim Chen <tim.c.chen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit a8f76ae41cd633ac00be1b3019b1eb4741be3828 upstream.

The Spectre V2 printout in cpu_show_common() handles conditionals for the
various mitigation methods directly in the sprintf() argument list. That's
hard to read and will become unreadable if more complex decisions need to
be made for a particular method.

Move the conditionals for STIBP and IBPB string selection into helper
functions, so they can be extended later on.
