x86/speculation: Fix redundant MDS mitigation message

Since MDS and TAA mitigations are inter-related for processors that are
affected by both vulnerabilities, the followiing confusing messages can
be printed in the kernel log:

MDS: Vulnerable
MDS: Mitigation: Clear CPU buffers

To avoid the first incorrect message, defer the printing of MDS
mitigation after the TAA mitigation selection has been done. However,
that has the side effect of printing TAA mitigation first before MDS
mitigation.
