Subject[PATCH 4.4 082/266] powerpc/fsl: Flush the branch predictor at each kernel entry (32 bit)
Date
From: Diana Craciun <diana.craciun@nxp.com>

commit 7fef436295bf6c05effe682c8797dfcb0deb112a upstream.

In order to protect against speculation attacks on
indirect branches, the branch predictor is flushed at
kernel entry to protect for the following situations:
- userspace process attacking another userspace process
- userspace process attacking the kernel
Basically when the privillege level change (i.e.the kernel
is entered), the branch predictor state is flushed.
