Subject[PATCH 4.4 040/266] powerpc/64s: Enable barrier_nospec based on firmware settings
Date
From: Michal Suchanek <msuchanek@suse.de>

commit cb3d6759a93c6d0aea1c10deb6d00e111c29c19c upstream.

Check what firmware told us and enable/disable the barrier_nospec as
appropriate.

We err on the side of enabling the barrier, as it's no-op on older
systems, see the comment for more detail.
