[PATCH 4.4 061/266] powerpc/fsl: Flush the branch predictor at each kernel entry (64bit)




From: Diana Craciun <diana.craciun@xxxxxxx>

commit 10c5e83afd4a3f01712d97d3bb1ae34d5b74a185 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.
