    x86/speculation/l1tf: Add sysfs reporting for l1tf · 3d98de69

    commit 17dbca11 upstream
    L1TF core kernel workarounds are cheap and normally always enabled, However
    they still should be reported in sysfs if the system is vulnerable or
    mitigated. Add the necessary CPU feature/bug bits.
    - Extend the existing checks for Meltdowns to determine if the system is
      vulnerable. All CPUs which are not vulnerable to Meltdown are also not
      vulnerable to L1TF
    - Check for 32bit non PAE and emit a warning as there is no practical way
      for mitigation due to the limited physical address bits
    - If the system has more than MAX_PA/2 physical memory the invert page
      workarounds don't protect the system against the L1TF attack anymore,
      because an inverted physical address will also point to valid
      memory. Print a warning in this case and report that the system is
    Add a function which returns the PFN limit for the L1TF mitigation, which
    will be used in follow up patches for sanity and range checks.
