Subject: [PATCH] x86/spectre: fix an error message
Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2018 10:14:17 +0300
Message-ID: <20180214071416.GA26677@mwanda> (raw)

If i == ARRAY_SIZE(mitigation_options) then we accidentally print
garbage from one space beyond the end of the mitigation_options[] array.

Fixes: 9005c6834c0f ("x86/spectre: Simplify spectre_v2 command line parsing")
