Subject[GIT PULL] s390 updates for 4.16 merge window
Hello Linus,

since Martin is on vacation you get the s390 pull request from me:

please pull from the 'for-linus' branch of

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/s390/linux.git for-linus

to receive the following updates:

The main thing in this merge is the defense for the Spectre vulnerabilities.
But there are other updates as well, the changes in more detail:

* An s390 specific implementation of the array_index_mask_nospec function
to the defense against spectre v1

* Two patches to utilize the new PPA-12/PPA-13 instructions to run the
kernel and/or user space with reduced branch predicton.

* The s390 variant of the 'retpoline' spectre v2 defense called 'expoline'.
There is no return instruction for s390, instead an indirect branch is
used for function return. The s390 defense mechanism for indirect
branches works by using an execute-type instruction with the indirect
branch as the target of the execute. In effect that turns off the
prediction for the indirect branch.

* Scrub registers in entry.S that contain user controlled values to
prevent the speculative use of these values.

* Re-add the second parameter for the s390 specific runtime-instrumentation
system call and move the header file to uapi. The second parameter will
continue to do nothing but older kernel versions only accepted valid
real-time signal numbers. The details will be documented in the man-page
for the system call.

* Corrections and improvements for the s390 specific documentation

* Add a line to /proc/sysinfo to display the CPU model dependent
license-internal-code identifier

* A header file include fix for eadm.

* An error message fix in the kprobes code.

* The removal of an outdated ARCH_xxx select statement.

Thanks,
Heiko
