yes, it has KPTI for v3/Meltdown, full RETPOLINE for v2, and masking of
pointers passed from user space via array_index_mask_nospec for v1.

it does not include the originally embargoed IBRS/IBPB patch set used by
RH/Suse/Canonical in the first waves of mitigation. some parts of that
might still get included if/when they get applied upstream. passing
SPEC_CTRL/IBRS/IBPB through to VM guests should work as before (if
supported by the CPU/µcode).
