x86/bugs: Do not enable IBPB at firmware entry when IBPB is not available
Some cloud hypervisors do not provide IBPB on very recent CPU processors, including AMD processors affected by Retbleed. Using IBPB before firmware calls on such systems would cause a GPF at boot like the one below. Do not enable such calls when IBPB support is not present.
