Bug Description

== SRU Justification ==

There are a couple of Spectre related commits in Xenial that never landed in Bionic. Fix that to prevent a regression when upgrading from Xenial to Bionic.

== Regression Potential ==

Low. These are not very intrusive commits that have been in upstream for quite a while.

== Fix ==

Backport the relevant commits from upstream.

== Test Case ==

TBD.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
