i applied your patch series on linux-next-20190103. On my Raspberry Pi 3B+ (defconfig) i'm getting this from sysfs:

l1tf:Not affected
meltdown:Not affected
spec_store_bypass:Unknown
spectre_v1:Mitigation: __user pointer sanitization
spectre_v2:Unknown

AFAIK it has 4 Cortex-A53 cores (no PSCI firmware), so shouldn't be affected.

How can this be fixed?

Thanks
Stefan
