Summary     : Spectre & Meltdown vulnerability/mitigation checker for Linux
Description :
Spectre & Meltdown vulnerability/mitigation checker for Linux.

Update Information:

* Feature: support detection for Variant 3a (CVE-2018-3640) and Variant 4
(CVE-2018-3639) * Feature: add Spectre v1 mitigation detection for ARM 32 bits *
Feature: add Cavium CPU support and correct vulnerability information * Feature:
add guess for kernel image location on Raspberry Pi 3 * Feature: ability to run
the script inside a Docker container * Change: omit explanations by default to
avoid cluttering the output, use `--explain` to get detailed mitigation help *
Enhancement: explain mode: suggest to set VM CPU to an IBRS-capable one for
hypervisors * Enhancement: avoid use of `iflag=skip_bytes` for compat with old
`dd` versions * Fix: no longer unload msr or cpuid modules on exit if they were
loaded before we started * Fix: when we can't determine if IBRS is enabled or
not, report it as NO instead of UNKNOWN when we know that the CPU can't support
it * Fix: variant2: detection now works under SLES kernels * Fix: ARM: update
vulnerability info to latest vendor statement * Fix: ARM: ARMv8 models under
Cortex A57 correctly marked as non-vulnerable (also fixes Raspberry Pi 3) * Fix:
prometheus output wouldn't format `\n` correctly under some systems
