Got it, thanks. So, in a more general case, what can we do to remediate
such attacks across all the systems we have? And, further, what PCI support
can we contemplate removing now that kernels are smarter, so as to help
ensure that we don't accidentally make such attacks possible in the future?

And, in the age of FSP blobs, what should we check to make sure FSP has not
accidentally enabled such attacks?
