Security Fix(es):

An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
designs have implemented speculative execution of instructions (a commonly
used performance optimization). There are three primary variants of the
issue which differ in the way the speculative execution can be exploited.

Note: This issue is present in hardware and cannot be fully fixed via
software update. The updated kernel packages provide software mitigation
for this hardware issue at a cost of potential performance penalty. Please
refer to References section for further information about this issue and
the performance impact.

In this update initial mitigations for IBM Power (PowerPC) and IBM zSeries
(S390) architectures are provided.

  * Variant CVE-2017-5715 triggers the speculative execution by utilizing
branch target injection. It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined
instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory
accesses may cause allocation into the microprocessor's data cache even for
speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As
a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to cross the syscall
and guest/host boundaries and read privileged memory by conducting targeted
cache side-channel attacks. This fix specifically addresses S390
processors. (CVE-2017-5715, Important)

  * Variant CVE-2017-5753 triggers the speculative execution by performing a
bounds-check bypass. It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined
instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory
accesses may cause allocation into the microprocessor's data cache even for
speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As
a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to cross the syscall
boundary and read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache
side-channel attacks. This fix specifically addresses S390 and PowerPC
processors. (CVE-2017-5753, Important)

  * Variant CVE-2017-5754 relies on the fact that, on impacted
microprocessors, during speculative execution of instruction permission
faults, exception generation triggered by a faulting access is suppressed
until the retirement of the whole instruction block. In a combination with
the fact that memory accesses may populate the cache even when the block is
being dropped and never committed (executed), an unprivileged local
attacker could use this flaw to read privileged (kernel space) memory by
conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks. Note: CVE-2017- ...
