I don't know if any of you followed this (I didn't, just read some articles today), there is work in progress to secure the use of Hyper-Threading on CPUs vulnerable to L1TF and MDS.
The kernel discussions around this development:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/cover.1...italocean.com/
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/2019091...A1855@sinkpad/
This is the good news, the bad one is that these changes will be implemented only in 5.4. Hopefully they'll also get backported once mature enough.
Presentations related to the subject at the Linux Plumbers Conference 2019:
https://linuxplumbersconf.org/event/...ributions/430/
https://linuxplumbersconf.org/event/...ributions/285/
https://linuxplumbersconf.org/event/...ributions/417/

There are also some ideas floating around about improving the Kernel Address Space Isolation:
https://linuxplumbersconf.org/event/...ributions/277/
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1562855...re@oracle.com/
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/FD3482A...capital.net/T/
- and a long pdf presentation:

Apparently there has been some "build problems" with the above mentioned updates. A second round of release candidates were issued about 6 hours ago, so it could be later today or, perhaps, tomorrow before we see new kernels.

Running kernel 5.3.0 ok, NVidia 430.50 built ok with --dkms.

vhba module wasn't building with the last rc7 but now builds ok.

Virtualbox 6.0.12 didn't build, I had to install 6.1.0 beta1.
This is the .run file from Oracle.
The vms saved at console opened ok, only Debian vm that was saved
inside X session didn't open, I had to boot it again.

VirtualBox-6.0.12 installs and runs as it should here.
I had forgotten to uninstall it when installing the most recent kernel
and it, as it should, re-built itself for the new kernel upon reboot.
Just for chuckles, a few minutes ago I ran, /opt/VirtualBox/sh uninstall.sh,
waited a few beats and ran, sh ./VirtualBox-6.0.12-133076-Linux_amd64.run
and all is well.
