No, for the 486 it *should* have worked. The interesting commit
is fec9434a12 ("x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on CPUs which are not
vulnerable to Meltdown") which is indeed pulled in with the merge
commit that Matthew mentions.

Matthew, can you show the content of /proc/cpuinfo please? And perhaps
add a printk or two in early_identify_cpu() to work out what's going

Your CPU *should* hit the x86_match_cpu(cpu_no_speculation) case and
not set any of the three bugs, AFAICT.[unhandled content-type:application/x-pkcs7-signature]
