This pull request contains fix(es) for the following CVE(s):

Pull in the latest Spectre v1 fixes from mainline. All commits are either
clean cherry-picks or simple backports (context adjustments only).

The changes are fairly trivial and non-intrusive (low risk) in that they
sprinkle array_index_nospec() calls over different places where an array
index is user controllable.

Compile-tested all supported architectures.
