Subject: x86/speculation: Fix __initconst in bugs.c

So how does this fix __initconst?

Again from Documentation:

  "The summary phrase in the email’s Subject should concisely describe the
  patch which that email contains. The summary phrase should not be a
  filename."

Also instead of having the file name in the subject line, which is
completely uninteresting the prefix should be 'x86/cpu/bugs:'

This lacks a 'Fixes:' tag.
