SubjectSuggestion: „spectre v2=off“ and „no pti“ per default in "Intel Atom N270" case?
Date
Hi,

Since the old "in-order-execution" Intel CPUs like the Intel Atom N270
(known for being installed in many Netbooks and Nettops) are not
sensitive for "Meltdown" & "Spectre" , wouldn't it be a good idea to
exclude these anyway "weak" CPUs from the costly patches by default?

Browsing the web, I can "feel the difference" if the matching kernel
options are applied on such a device.
