    Phoronix: GCC Compiler Lands Mitigation For Arm's Straight Line Speculation Vulnerability

    It took a month after Arm disclosed the CPU "SLS" vulnerability and when the LLVM compiler landed their initial mitigation, but the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) now has mitigations as well for this Straight Line Speculation vulnerability...

        Some clang vs gcc benchmarks would be nice.

          So, what version number of gcc will I need to get this ARM mitigation? Right now, I've got:

          $ gcc --version
          gcc (Gentoo 10.1.0 p1) 10.1.0

          but I'm guessing even that's not new enough?

            More like stupid fanboys that have no clue with regards to CPU architecture go like:
            "OMG. ARM is RISC (idiot right there) and sooo shiny. It haz no bugs because it's ARM and like magic sauce."
            also
            "ARM is per default low power for the same performance. Because. You know. Electrons like ARM CPUs better. Yes. That's it."
