Subject[PATCH 5.10 62/65] x86/bugs: Do not enable IBPB at firmware entry when IBPB is not available
Date
From: Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo <cascardo@canonical.com>

commit 571c30b1a88465a1c85a6f7762609939b9085a15 upstream.

Some cloud hypervisors do not provide IBPB on very recent CPU processors,
including AMD processors affected by Retbleed.

Using IBPB before firmware calls on such systems would cause a GPF at boot
like the one below. Do not enable such calls when IBPB support is not
present.
