x86/kbuild: Eliminate duplicate command line options

The options -mno-mmx and -mno-sse are unconditionally added to
KBUILD_CFLAGS in both branches of an ifeq and through a
$(cc-option) further down. We can safely remove the first

In fact, since the -mno-mmx and -mno-sse options were introduced
simultaneous with the other two options in the $(cc-option)
[according to],
and since the former were unconditionally used, one can deduce that
only gcc versions knowing about all four are supported. So also
eliminate the $(cc-option) wrap.
