linux-aws kernel updates for PTI/kaiser features

Asked by n on 2018-01-05

Hi
Because of the recent meltdown and spectre vulnerabilities, I'd like to make sure PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION is enabled on my AWS EC2 instances using ubuntu. Will there soon be a linux-aws version for ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 that has this feature?

Thanks
