Subject[PATCH 4.9 18/47] module: Add retpoline tag to VERMAGIC
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

commit 6cfb521ac0d5b97470883ff9b7facae264b7ab12 upstream.

Add a marker for retpoline to the module VERMAGIC. This catches the case
when a non RETPOLINE compiled module gets loaded into a retpoline kernel,
making it insecure.

It doesn't handle the case when retpoline has been runtime disabled. Even
in this case the match of the retcompile status will be enforced. This
implies that even with retpoline run time disabled all modules loaded need
to be recompiled.
