Okay, I did a 'git pull' from Linus' tree and rebuilt. I _believe_ I
have the correct patches from this information:

localhost /usr/src/linux # git log | grep "Do not enable PTI on CPUs
which are not vulnerable to Meltdown"
Fixes: fec9434a12f3 ("x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on CPUs which are
not vulnerable to Meltdown")
x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on CPUs which are not vulnerable to Meltdown
x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on CPUs which are not vulnerable to Meltdown

localhost /usr/src/linux # git log | grep -A8

commit 6304672b7f0a5c010002e63a075160856dc4f88d
Merge: 942633523cde 64e16720ea08
Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
Date: Mon Jan 29 19:08:02 2018 -0800

Merge branch 'x86-pti-for-linus' of
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

Pull x86/pti updates from Thomas Gleixner:
"Another set of melted spectrum related changes:


If that is correct (and I might be wrong), then I am up to date and I
am still getting the following in /proc/cpuinfo on my Pentium 4M i686:

bugs : cpu_meltdown spectre_v1 spectre_v2
