Subject: [PATCH 5.4 02/33] x86,bugs: Unconditionally allow spectre_v2=retpoline,amd
Date: Thu, 10 Mar 2022 15:19:03 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220310140808.814122420@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20220310140808.741682643@linuxfoundation.org>

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit f8a66d608a3e471e1202778c2a36cbdc96bae73b upstream.

Currently Linux prevents usage of retpoline,amd on !AMD hardware, this
is unfriendly and gets in the way of testing. Remove this restriction.
