    This update provides mitigations for the Spectre v4 variant in x86-based
    micro processors. On Intel CPUs this requires updated microcode which
    is currently not released publicly (but your hardware vendor may have
    issued an update). For servers with AMD CPUs no microcode update is
    needed, please refer to https://xenbits.xen.org/xsa/advisory-263.html
    for further information.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
