Spectre mitigations in Intel C++ compiler

So, I was looking up everywhere and found mitigations for Specter v1 (Spectre-PHT) and v2 (Spectre-BTB) in the Intel C++ compiler at (https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/using-intel-compilers-to-mitigate-speculative-execution-side-channel-issues.html).

But the thing is that I couldn't find any mitigations for other variants of spectre like Spectre v4 (Spectre-STL) and v5 (Spectre-RSB) at the compiler level for Intel C++. Does anyone know if there are any mitigations for these variants in the Intel C++ compiler?
Looking forward to hearing from you guys
