SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/retpoline: Fill RSB on context switch for affected CPUs

We need to do more things for Skylake (like idle and interrupt fill
and possibly deep call cahin), so I don't think it makes sense to

- have an individual flag for each of these. It can be just a single
flag that enables all of this for Skylake

- print something for each of them. that will just be very noisy
without any useful benefit to the user.
