I have a question about this statement:
Kernel-ml has the retpoline patches but at present RHEL does not have
a retpoline-aware compiler. The upstream kernel code (kernel.org) does
not currently contain the IBRS patches that Red Hat have incorporated
into the distro kernel.
Once a retpoline enabled compiler is available, will ONLY the kernel
need to be rebuilt with it or will *ALL* packages need to be recompiled
as well (from the Centos community, 3rd party packages, etc)?
