I've made a 'msr-bitmap' branch in my linux-retpoline.git tree¹ which
looks more like I expected. It's based on tip/x86/pti.

In the ibpb branch (on which I've just done a pass over Karim's patches
and would appreciate more feedback while he fixes up some remaining
details and prepares to send it out again) I have deliberately done a
merge from that branch, with the intention that I can go back and do a
pull from your branch instead.

All the IBRS bits are now in the 'ibrs' branch. As discussed, I'll keep
rebasing those on top of what we have, for now.
