I've noticed this issue with blank '/boot/retpoline-*' files in 16.04
LTS Release (i386/x86_32) after Linux kernel update to the v4.4.0-115
version. (Generally, I've started to seeing these files when
"Spectre_V12" patches were available for i386 architecture. I wanted to
ask a question or report a bug about it etc.) So, these files are empty
and it looks this way on 16.04 LTS Release:
[~]$ ls -al /boot/retpoline-4.4.0-11*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 lut 11 19:00 /boot/retpoline-4.4.0-115-generic
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 lut 13 00:14 /boot/retpoline-4.4.0-116-generic
[~]$ uname -m
Thanks, best regards.

retpoline abi files are empty on i386

The <flavour>.retpoline files in the current abi are actually blank.
This is due to incorrect handling in retpoline-extract.
