Thanks for saying that Jasper.  And thanks to Ben for getting the
paper to us.

As demonstrated in the commit message, we hesitate to pass on more
information.  That remains Ben's thunder in Vegas.

However we wanted to get a usable mitigation for the problem into
public.  Maybe Intel has solutions with less overhead.  But Intel
excluded us from conversation so we don't know what those solutions
might be.  So we follow a pattern of immediately releasing a rough
solution, which we can retract if a cheaper solution becomes published.
