Folks, I was just wondering if I could get an update on where we are with this bug. It seems we aren't sure if it's a real issue or not. What's the latest thought?

Werner, I interpreted jwilik's patch as admission of a problem from upstream, and reported it as such to CVE. I felt that since this does not effect the main platforms (ARM and x86_64) it would not be a big deal. If I interpreted wrong, I am sorry.
I assigned the CVE, but yes it needs more facts.
Andreas, I wonder on which grounds you assigned a CVE for this claimed side-channel attack. The mentioned paper is about an old RSA side-channel and not on AES. I would like to see more facts than the reference to a guy who knows PPC pretty well.
