x86/speculation: Prevent deadlock on ssb_state::lock

Mikhail reported a lockdep splat related to the AMD specific ssb_state
lock:

  CPU0                       CPU1
  lock(&st->lock);
                             local_irq_disable();
                             lock(&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock);
                             lock(&st->lock);
  <Interrupt>
     lock(&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock);

  *** DEADLOCK ***

The connection between sighand->siglock and st->lock comes through seccomp,
which takes st->lock while holding sighand->siglock.

Make sure interrupts are disabled when __speculation_ctrl_update() is
invoked via prctl() -> speculation_ctrl_update(). Add a lockdep assert to
catch future offenders.
