Subject[PATCH 4.4 130/132] powerpc/64s: support nospectre_v2 cmdline option
Date
From: "Christopher M. Riedl" <cmr@informatik.wtf>

commit d8f0e0b073e1ec52a05f0c2a56318b47387d2f10 upstream.

Add support for disabling the kernel implemented spectre v2 mitigation
(count cache flush on context switch) via the nospectre_v2 and
mitigations=off cmdline options.
