Description

Now that there are Intel CPUs in the wild unaffected by Meltdown, PTI may default to disabled in cases where it is not clear to the user what is happening. The checkbox on system_advanced_misc.php implies that unchecked=on, checked=off, but in reality the option only forces it off, there is no way to force it on.

The wording of the message should also include that it requires a reboot to activate.
