Description:

Future Intel CPU's like Cascade Lake and GLK+ support Enhanced IBRS. Enhanced IBRS is a H/W mitigation technique for Spectre V2 bug. So, it's important for us to make sure that all the OSV's are using this feature.

The patch that enables kernel support for this feature has been taken by Thomas and it's in TIP tree. So, please back port it to all the OSV's. Please find the patch here: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git/commit/?h=x86/pti&id=706d51681d636a0c4a5ef53395ec3b803e45ed4d
