Subject: [PATCH 4.9 64/92] x86/syscall: Sanitize syscall table de-references under speculation

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@...el.com>


(cherry picked from commit 2fbd7af5af8665d18bcefae3e9700be07e22b681)

The syscall table base is a user controlled function pointer in kernel
space. Use array_index_nospec() to prevent any out of bounds speculation.

While retpoline prevents speculating into a userspace directed target it
does not stop the pointer de-reference, the concern is leaking memory
relative to the syscall table base, by observing instruction cache
behavior.
