[PATCH 0/4][SRU][D/E] MDS: Update mitigation patches to match upstream

This series updates our MDS mitigation patches to match the latest
upstream patches in order to make future backports easier. The SAUCE
patch's description should explain itself clearly but, to summarize, it
is needed in order to bring the patches that we shipped on May 14th up
to the final revision of those patches. The final three patches simply
update the documentation. 

The build logs are clean. I've smoke tested these changes in a VM.



Josh Poimboeuf (1):

Tyler Hicks (2):
  UBUNTU: SAUCE: Synchronize MDS mitigations with upstream
  Documentation: Correct the possible MDS sysfs values
