Merge branch 'smp-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

Pull SMP fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
 "Two small changes for the cpu hotplug code:

   - Prevent out of bounds access which actually might crash the machine
     caused by a missing bounds check in the fail injection code

   - Warn about unsupported migitation mode command line arguments to
     make people aware that they typoed the paramater. Not necessarily a
     fix but quite some people tripped over that"

  cpu/hotplug: Fix out-of-bounds read when setting fail state
  cpu/speculation: Warn on unsupported mitigations= parameter
