Do they work on spectre as well as meltdown?
Sorry for not replying on the site by mistake.
I'd go a step further--it's not some (random) kernels that you could run, but
it is the updated kernels (now, and unless a regression, going forward) that
will have the fix(es) and will run "automatically" (perhaps after a reboot).
