PTI offers mitigation against Meltdown, retpoline against Spectre v2.

Basic LFS compiles fine with book settings, apart from grub where a
minimal change was required in the final build of binutils 2.30. I admit
I simply hacked the script 082-binutils in lfs-commands to achieve that.

configure needs the following switch on 32 bit systems:

Thomas, Have you tested you built grub? When I investigate the enable-64-bit-bfd option, the comment I see is "64-bit support (on hosts with narrower word sizes)" I am thinking about adding this unconditionally, but am a bit concerned that grub will try to run 64-bit code on a 32-bit system (and crash). I'm not sure that adding the option to a normal 64-bit build will hurt anyting, but I'll test that.
