x86/cpu: Re-apply forced caps every time CPU caps are re-read

Calling get_cpu_cap() will reset a bunch of CPU features.  This will
cause the system to lose track of force-set and force-cleared
features in the words that are reset until the end of CPU
initialization.  This can cause X86_FEATURE_FPU, for example, to
change back and forth during boot and potentially confuse CPU setup.

To minimize the chance of confusion, re-apply forced caps every time
get_cpu_cap() is called.
