    Subject[PATCH 5.10 428/563] selftests/powerpc/spectre_v2: Return skip code when miss_percent is high
    Date
    From: Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo <cascardo@canonical.com>

    [ Upstream commit 3c42e9542050d49610077e083c7c3f5fd5e26820 ]

    A mis-match between reported and actual mitigation is not restricted to the
    Vulnerable case. The guest might also report the mitigation as "Software
    count cache flush" and the host will still mitigate with branch cache
    disabled.

    So, instead of skipping depending on the detected mitigation, simply skip
    whenever the detected miss_percent is the expected one for a fully
    mitigated system, that is, above 95%.
