Additional Meltdown and Spectre updates

Additional updates to mitigate the Meltdown and Spectre issues caused by flawed design of the branch prediction unit of Intel processors (the last 20 years) have been deployed to all grid and database servers. 

Meltdown and Spectre updates

Code to mitigate the Meltdown and Spectre security issues in Intel processors have been applied to all grid servers.  

Additional fixes will be applied as they become available, but the issue will not be removed till Intel have made new processors without the problem. ETA for such processors are at least 18 months before they are available to hardware makers.
