Public bug reported:
To mitigate Spectre Variant 2, gcc needs to have retpoline support
(-mindirect-branch and -mfunction-return arguments on amd64 and i386).
Packages with this will go into the proposed pockets but need to be
published in the -security pockets for their respective releases.
** Affects: gcc-4.8 (Ubuntu)
