Sorry if I am not being clear enough.

Put another way, there is no effect to the auto option where the
contents of cpu_no_meltdown are changed and
cpu_vulnerable_to_meltdown returns differently.
The auto option does not make use of a determination of the
This seems wrong to me. It does not seem correct to me for the auto
option to have this duplication with a check for just X86_VENDOR_AMD.
