ML10 Gen9 - CVE-2017-5715 mitigation BIOS update

When will you have finished testing Intel's latest microcode update for the Xeon in your ML10 Gen9?

Would be nice to know when to expect the bios update (I had assumed BIOS_1.10 was it but it seems not) or if there is another update I should be applying? Thanks Paul

I have just applied ML10_Gen9_BIOS_1.10_Windows.zip and run Speculation Control check which shows:

Speculation control settings for CVE-2017-5715 [branch target injection]

The ML10 Gen9 seems to be a very unloved product, doesn't even appear in your spectre/meltdown advisory

Unless perhaps it is the ML10 (no version) that states a patch is not yet available? The ML10v2 says patch is available but that's your Gen 8 version I think?
