Intel Lazy FP State Restore CPU bug

I see that there's a new CPU bug on Intel - another side-channel info leak based on speculative execution. Seems that there's a new patch for FreeBSD 12 for it. https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-security/2018-June/009822.html
I'm guessing that it's low risk on a PFsense box since it's an info leak issue (would require another local compromise to exploit). Perhaps it's more concerning for virtualized PFsense.
Will we see a new release to mitigate this?
A patch to FreeBSD -HEAD has been issued and we are evaluating. More information soon, pfSense development snapshots will be first to have this fix
