Subject[PATCH v2 10/12] retpoline/taint: Taint kernel for missing retpoline in compiler
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

When the kernel or a module hasn't been compiled with a retpoline
aware compiler, print a warning and set a taint flag.

For modules it is checked at compile time, however it cannot
check assembler or other non compiled objects used in the module link.

Due to lack of better letter it uses taint option 'Z'

v2: Change warning message
