Punch in the nose for Intel as Arm has decided that 32bit is worth patching for Variant 1and 2 , That should keep Chromebook users happy.

Arm emits Cortex-A76 – its first 64-bit-only CPU core (in kernel mode) http://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/31/arm_cortex_a76/ This move is part of Arm's unhurried stroll away from its years-old 32-bit instruction set.
