I would like to know why there isn't an official vendor Bug ID yet
because without that nobody knows what the fix actually is or when it is
needed. It's also not going to help much given the user space problem
(and mixed kernel/user stuff like futexes).

Second point - it needs to be possible to avoid compiling this stuff in
the first place. I don't see where you arrange CMPXCHNG_LFENCE to come
out as blank when people compile for processors without the bug ?
