Subject[PATCH 4.9 29/39] x86/kaiser: Check boottime cmdline params
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>


AMD (and possibly other vendors) are not affected by the leak
KAISER is protecting against.

Keep the "nopti" for traditional reasons and add pti=<on|off|auto>
like upstream.
