You mean if the user deliberately types:

"cpu_spec_mitigations=off spectre_v2=auto"

on the cmdline to turn off all and then enable only one?

Hmm, yap, sounds like an overkill to me. Then I'd probably do:

pr_err("Make up your mind already!\n");
return;

:-))

I'd say let's do the simpler and cleaner thing now and think about
supporting this overkill when it really turns out that it is needed.
