Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 Preview 4 adds a new capability to our Spectre mitigation: the ability to see where the compiler would have inserted a mitigation and what data led to that action. A new warning, C5045, lets you see what patterns in your code would have caused a mitigation, such as an LFENCE, to be inserted.
