4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.willi...@intel.com>

commit eb6174f6d1be16b19cfa43dac296bfed003ce1a6 upstream.

The nospec.h header expects the per-architecture header file
<asm/barrier.h> to optionally define array_index_mask_nospec(). Include
that dependency to prevent inadvertent fallback to the default
array_index_mask_nospec() implementation.

The default implementation may not provide a full mitigation
on architectures that perform data value speculation.
