By 'core', do you mean a logical CPU(hyperthread) or the entire core?

Assume you meant a hyperthread, then the question is: when a hyperthread
is idle with tasks sitting in its runqueue, do these tasks match with the
other hyperthread's rq->curr? If so, then it is a problem that need to
be addressed; if not, then this is due to the constraint imposed by the
mitigation of L1TF.
