Subject[PATCH 4.9 67/92] x86/spectre: Report get_user mitigation for spectre_v1
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>


(cherry picked from commit edfbae53dab8348fca778531be9f4855d2ca0360)

Reflect the presence of get_user(), __get_user(), and 'syscall' protections
in sysfs. The expectation is that new and better tooling will allow the
kernel to grow more usages of array_index_nospec(), for now, only claim
mitigation for __user pointer de-references.
