Red Hat hasn’t released them all yet. Quoting Christopher Robinson in the thread for this here:

"We will be pushing errata out as soon as they have passed our QA team's testing. The more modern versions were easier to backport patches from upstream, and as you progress backwards the fixes change from a backporting exercise into a complete rewrite. We expect all packages for RHEL7 to be available shortly, with RHEL6 following closely behind.”

Robinson’s reply then goes into other ramifications which don’t impact CentOS for one reason or another, except insofar as CentOS’s speed in responding to this is gated in large part by Red Hat’s ability to respond.

How about kernel-lt and kernel-ml?

If you are referring to kernel-lt and kernel-ml packages offered by
elrepo, may I refer you to this post / thread:

Essentially, kernel-lt and kernel-ml contain all the latest fixes that
are in the equivalent upstream kernel versions.

Further, I'd highly recommend you read Greg Kroah-Hartman's blog posting
(below) summarising the current state of play within the Linux kernel
for Meltdown and Spectre issues:

I have released everything for CentOS-6 that has been released upstream
in RHEL source code.

I will continue to do so when they release new sources.

NOTE: We will NOT be releasing anything for CentOS versions before
CentOS-6 (ie, CentOS-2.1, 3.x, 4.x, 5.x releases in vault that are past
EOL will not get updates)

CentOS-6 and CentOS-7 will continue to get updates based on the specific
version of RHEL source code released.

Thanks - do you know if anything else is expected to be released soon for CentOS 6 or 7?
