This flaw is known as Spectre Variant 4. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information, including kernel memory. Jan H. Schonherr discovered that the Xen subsystem did not properly handle block IO merges correctly in some situations. An attacker in a guest vm could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly gain administrative privileges in the host. Various other issues were also addressed.
