Subject: [PATCH v2 16/19] p54: prevent bounds-check bypass via speculative
 execution

Static analysis reports that 'queue' may be a user controlled value that
is used as a data dependency to read from the 'priv->qos_params' array.
In order to avoid potential leaks of kernel memory values, block
speculative execution of the instruction stream that could issue reads
based on an invalid result of 'priv->qos_params[queue]'.

Based on an original patch by Elena Reshetova.
