Subject[PATCH 24/29] arm64: Turn on KPTI only on CPUs that need it
Date
From: Jayachandran C <jnair@caviumnetworks.com>

commit 0ba2e29c7fc1 upstream.

Whitelist Broadcom Vulcan/Cavium ThunderX2 processors in
unmap_kernel_at_el0(). These CPUs are not vulnerable to
CVE-2017-5754 and do not need KPTI when KASLR is off.
