[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] x86/cpu: add "md-clear" feature for MDS securit

From: Daniel P . Berrangé
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] x86/cpu: add "md-clear" feature for MDS security flaws
Date: Wed, 15 May 2019 15:10:09 +0100

This patch series provides the new "md-clear" feature that is used
for mitigation with CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2018-12130,

Assuming you have the updated microcode and kernel to support the
md-clear feature, then using "-cpu host" will expose the new
feature to guests. For named CPU models, it must be explicitly
added eg "-cpu Haswell,+md-clear"

The first patch from Paolo is what most distros will already be
shipping with their security updates for this issue.
