Subject[PATCH 4.4 32/75] arm64: KVM: Report SMCCC_ARCH_WORKAROUND_1 BP hardening support
Date
From: Marc Zyngier <marc.zyngier@arm.com>

commit 6167ec5c9145cdf493722dfd80a5d48bafc4a18a upstream.

A new feature of SMCCC 1.1 is that it offers firmware-based CPU
workarounds. In particular, SMCCC_ARCH_WORKAROUND_1 provides
BP hardening for CVE-2017-5715.

If the host has some mitigation for this issue, report that
we deal with it using SMCCC_ARCH_WORKAROUND_1, as we apply the
host workaround on every guest exit.
