Subject: [PATCH v7 1/3] x86/mm: Optionally flush L1D on context switch

Implement a mechanism to selectively flush the L1D cache. The goal is to
allow tasks that are paranoid due to the recent snoop assisted data sampling
vulnerabilites, to flush their L1D on being switched out.  This protects
their data from being snooped or leaked via side channels after the task
has context switched out.

There are two scenarios we might want to protect against, a task leaving
the CPU with data still in L1D (which is the main concern of this patch),
the second scenario is a malicious task coming in (not so well trusted)
for which we want to clean up the cache before it starts. Only the case
for the former is addressed.

A new thread_info flag TIF_SPEC_L1D_FLUSH is added to track tasks which
opt-into L1D flushing. cpu_tlbstate.last_user_mm_spec is used to convert
the TIF flags into mm state (per cpu via last_user_mm_spec) in
cond_mitigation(), which then used to do decide when to flush the
L1D cache.
