What impact does the Spectre/Meltdown issue have on the components of a BladeSystem environment?

We are developing a plan to mitigate the Spectre/Meltdown issue on our servers and the question came up regarding wheater or not the BladeSystems in production are impacted. Other than the solution for the servers themselves I haven't found anything pointing to chassises, Virtual Connects, networking modules, etc. Does this threat touch these components, and if so, does anyone know of a refence that I can look at so it can be adressed?

Thanks.

overall, if you cannot run your own or foreign code on a device, it is not affected.

Hope this helps!

Outside of the server blades, there is no impact to the other componentry in the blade enclosure.
