True, but now at least it won't regress old boxes anymore, so we can
ship it in the stable branches of the distros with less restrictions.

It would be really good to be able to actually mitigate spectre v2/v4 on
most AMD systems, though. And current experience shows this is only
going to happen if we can have the required microcode update also going
through the operating system update channels.
