[CentOS] CentOS 6 i386 - meltdown and spectre

I have built all the source code releases from upstream for RHEL-6
regarding meltdown /spectre and released those into packages into the
CentOS Linux 6.9 updates repository.

As to whether or not either Arch (x86_64 or i386) is or is not
vulnerable, the CentOS team does not test for or make claims concerning
security fitness.  What we do build the source code that is released

Users must test for (and validate) the security fitness of CentOS Linux
for their own usage profiles.  If you require fully tested solutions
with software assurance and validated security, that is what RHEL is
for, right?
