[PATCH 4.9 38/76] powerpc/fsl: Flush the branch predictor at each kernel entry (32 bit)




commit 7fef436295bf6c05effe682c8797dfcb0deb112a upstream.

In order to protect against speculation attacks on
indirect branches, the branch predictor is flushed at
kernel entry to protect for the following situations:
- userspace process attacking another userspace process
- userspace process attacking the kernel
Basically when the privillege level change (i.e.the kernel
is entered), the branch predictor state is flushed.
