Merge branch 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x86/pti updates from Thomas Gleixner: "Another set of melted spectrum related changes: - Code simplifications and cleanups for RSB and retpolines. - Make the indirect calls in KVM speculation safe. - Whitelist CPUs which are known not to speculate from Meltdown and prepare for the new CPUID flag which tells the kernel that a CPU is not affected. - A less rigorous variant of the module retpoline check which merily warns when a non-retpoline protected module is loaded and reflects that fact in the sysfs file. - Prepare for Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier support. - Prepare for exposure of the Speculation Control MSRs to guests, so guest OSes which depend on those "features" can use them. Includes a blacklist of the broken microcodes. The actual exposure of the MSRs through KVM is still being worked on" * 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: x86/speculation: Simplify indirect_branch_prediction_barrier() x86/retpoline: Simplify vmexit_fill_RSB() x86/cpufeatures: Clean up Spectre v2 related CPUID flags x86/cpu/bugs: Make retpoline module warning conditional x86/bugs: Drop one "mitigation" from dmesg x86/nospec: Fix header guards names x86/alternative: Print unadorned pointers x86/speculation: Add basic IBPB (Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier) support x86/cpufeature: Blacklist SPEC_CTRL/PRED_CMD on early Spectre v2 microcodes x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on CPUs which are not vulnerable to Meltdown x86/msr: Add definitions for new speculation control MSRs x86/cpufeatures: Add AMD feature bits for Speculation Control x86/cpufeatures: Add Intel feature bits for Speculation Control x86/cpufeatures: Add CPUID_7_EDX CPUID leaf module/retpoline: Warn about missing retpoline in module KVM: VMX: Make indirect call speculation safe KVM: x86: Make indirect calls in emulator speculation safe
