Subject[PATCH v4 00/12] arm64: add system vulnerability sysfs entries
Arm64 machines should be displaying a human readable
vulnerability status to speculative execution attacks in

This series enables that behavior by providing the expected
functions. Those functions expose the cpu errata and feature
states, as well as whether firmware is responding appropriately
to display the overall machine status. This means that in a
heterogeneous machine we will only claim the machine is mitigated
or safe if we are confident all booted cores are safe or

Drop the patch which selectivly exports sysfs entries
Remove the CONFIG_EXPERT hidden options which allowed
the kernel to be built without the vulnerability
detection code.
Pick Marc Z's patches which invert the white/black
lists for spectrev2 and clean up the firmware
detection logic.
Document the existing kpti controls
Add a nospectre_v2 option to boot time disable the

Remove "Unknown" states, replace with further blacklists
and default vulnerable/not affected states.
Add the ability for an arch port to selectively export
sysfs vulnerabilities.

Add "Unknown" state to ABI/testing docs.
Minor tweaks.
