Subject: [v8 05/10] arm64: Use firmware to detect CPUs that are not affected by Spectre-v2

From: Marc Zyngier <marc.zyngier@....com>

The SMCCC ARCH_WORKAROUND_1 service can indicate that although the
firmware knows about the Spectre-v2 mitigation, this particular
CPU is not vulnerable, and it is thus not necessary to call
the firmware on this CPU.

Let's use this information to our benefit.
