Spectre (Variant 1, Bounds-check bypass [MISPREDICT]) mitigations

Description

See Meltdown and Spectre wiki page for more details, including a spreadsheet of Xen, Linux, Windows, microcode and hardware dependencies and candidate mitigations.

Public development activity on mitigations has shown a series of incremental improvements over time, as candidate mitigations are evaluated with different configurations of hardware, microcode, hypervisor, operating system and application workload.

For each piece or iteration of mitigation work that is being considered for OpenXT, please create a separate ticket within this epic.
