Subject[PATCH 4.4 248/266] x86/speculation: Support mitigations= cmdline option
Date
From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>

commit d68be4c4d31295ff6ae34a8ddfaa4c1a8ff42812 upstream.

Configure x86 runtime CPU speculation bug mitigations in accordance with
the 'mitigations=' cmdline option. This affects Meltdown, Spectre v2,
Speculative Store Bypass, and L1TF.

The default behavior is unchanged.

- Drop the auto,nosmt option and the l1tf mitigation selection, which we can't
support
- Adjust filenames, context]
