Subject[PATCH 3.16 67/76] x86/spectre: Fix an error message
3.16.56-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

commit 9de29eac8d2189424d81c0d840cd0469aa3d41c8 upstream.

If i == ARRAY_SIZE(mitigation_options) then we accidentally print
garbage from one space beyond the end of the mitigation_options[] array.
