Subject[PATCH 4.14 028/107] powerpc/64: Use barrier_nospec in syscall entry
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

commit 51973a815c6b46d7b23b68d6af371ad1c9d503ca upstream.

Our syscall entry is done in assembly so patch in an explicit
barrier_nospec.

Based on a patch by Michal Suchanek.
