[PATCH 4.4 243/266] x86/speculation: Move arch_smt_update() call to after mitigation decisions




From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 7c3658b20194a5b3209a143f63bc9c643c6a3ae2 upstream.

arch_smt_update() now has a dependency on both Spectre v2 and MDS
mitigations.  Move its initial call to after all the mitigation decisions
have been made.
