the amd security bulletin at
states that really only 2nd-gen epyc is fixed. etas for all other cpus (consumer
level) are in october/november/december.

quoting above:
2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors "Rome" (fixed)
AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Desktop Processors "Matisse" (Target Dec 2023)
AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors with Radeon Graphics "Renoir" AM4 (Target Dec 2023)
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000 Series Processors "Castle Peak" HEDT (Target Oct 2023)
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000WX Series Processors "Castle Peak" WS SP3 (Target Nov 2023/Dec 2023)
AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors with Radeon Graphics "Lucienne" (Target Dec 2023)
AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Mobile Processors with Radeon Graphics "Renoir" (Target Nov 2023)
AMD Ryzen 7020 Series Processors "Mendocino" FT6 (Target Dec 2023)

this is a disaster of a security announcement from AMD. nothing is fixed except
for epyc. the only workaround anyone really has is the chicken bit, thankfully.
