This small patch, to the Linux Kernel, is the most epic burn on Intel by AMD.

Paraphrased in English:
"If the CPU isn't AMD, assume it's not secure."

Kindly @KindlyFire

@BryanLunduke actually I guess this is untrue. The line just before the AMD CPU test already sets the CPU as insecure, making the AMD CPU's insecure as well for now

@KindlyFire @BryanLunduke It's a bit more complex than that - it's removing a line that assumes everything x86 is insecure, adding a line that tests for AMD before assuming insecure.
