Subject[PATCH 4.9 82/87] x86/bugs: Expose x86_spec_ctrl_base directly
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit fa8ac4988249c38476f6ad678a4848a736373403 upstream

x86_spec_ctrl_base is the system wide default value for the SPEC_CTRL MSR.
x86_spec_ctrl_get_default() returns x86_spec_ctrl_base and was intended to
prevent modification to that variable. Though the variable is read only
after init and globaly visible already.

Remove the function and export the variable instead.
