    This warning advisory is relevant for users of systems with the Intel
    processors code-named "Skylake" and "Kaby Lake". These are: the 6th and
    7th generation Intel Core processors (desktop, embedded, mobile and
    HEDT), their related server processors (such as Xeon v5 and Xeon v6), as
    well as select Intel Pentium processor models.

    TL;DR: unfixed Skylake and Kaby Lake processors could, in some
    situations, dangerously misbehave when hyper-threading is enabled.
    Disable hyper-threading immediately in BIOS/UEFI to work around the
    problem. Read this advisory for instructions about an Intel-provided
    fix.

Savage writes stuff. A lot of stuff. Too much stuff. If you like to read about stuff, you've come to the right place, and stuff.
