Subject: [GIT PULL] x86/urgent for v5.19-rc8
Date: Sun, 24 Jul 2022 11:05:49 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Yt0LbbTNZyrM0pVw@zn.tnic> (raw)

Hi Linus,

please pull a couple more retbleed fallout fixes.

It looks like their urgency is decreasing so it seems like we've managed
to catch whatever snafus the limited -rc testing has exposed. Maybe
we're getting ready... :)



The following changes since commit ff6992735ade75aae3e35d16b17da1008d753d28:

  Linux 5.19-rc7 (2022-07-17 13:30:22 -0700)

  x86/speculation: Make all RETbleed mitigations 64-bit only (2022-07-23 18:45:11 +0200)

- Make retbleed mitigations 64-bit only (32-bit will need a bit more
work if even needed, at all).

- Prevent return thunks patching of the LKDTM modules as it is not needed there

- Avoid writing the SPEC_CTRL MSR on every kernel entry on eIBRS parts

- Enhance error output of apply_returns() when it fails to patch a return thunk

- A sparse fix to the sev-guest module

- Protect EFI fw calls by issuing an IBPB on AMD
