"Fixes for CVE-2020-4788.
From Daniel's cover letter:
IBM Power9 processors can speculatively operate on data in the L1
cache before it has been completely validated, via a way-prediction
mechanism. It is not possible for an attacker to determine the
contents of impermissible memory using this method, since these
systems implement a combination of hardware and software security
measures to prevent scenarios where protected data could be leaked.
However these measures don't address the scenario where an attacker
induces the operating system to speculatively execute instructions
using data that the attacker controls. This can be used for example to
speculatively bypass "kernel user access prevention" techniques, as
discovered by Anthony Steinhauser of Google's Safeside Project. This
is not an attack by itself, but there is a possibility it could be
used in conjunction with side-channels or other weaknesses in the
privileged code to construct an attack.
This issue can be mitigated by flushing the L1 cache between privilege
boundaries of concern.
This patch series flushes the L1 cache on kernel entry (patch 2) and
after the kernel performs any user accesses (patch 3). It also adds a
self-test and performs some related cleanups"
