  vmm(4): Mask Spectre feature bits on AMD hosts

  For parity with Intel hosts, which already mask out the CPUID feature
  bits that indicate the presence of the SPEC_CTRL MSR, do the same on

  Eventually we may want to have a better support story for guests, but
  for now, limit the damage of incorrectly indicating an MSR we do not yet

  Eventually, we may want a generic CPUID override system for
  administrators, or for minimum supported feature set in heterogenous
  environments with failover.  That is a much larger scope effort than
  this bug fix.
