Slightly improved Docker configuration (#230)

* Listed the required volumes in the Dockerfile.

* Added docker-compose.yml for convenience as users won't need to manually
specify volumes and stuff when running through docker-compose.

Adjusted to reflect this change.

A shell script to tell if your system is vulnerable against the several "speculative execution" CVEs that were made public in 2018.
- CVE-2017-5753 [bounds check bypass] aka 'Spectre Variant 1'
- CVE-2017-5715 [branch target injection] aka 'Spectre Variant 2'
- CVE-2017-5754 [rogue data cache load] aka 'Meltdown' aka 'Variant 3'

**2018-08-15: Foreshadow support is being worked on, vulnerable/immune CPUs are already detected, and kernel-reported vulnerability status is checked, but manual mitigation detection is currently being implemented, will be available in the next few days**

## Understanding what this script does and doesn't
This tool does its best to determine whether your system is immune (or has proper mitigations in place) for the collectively named "speculative execution" vulnerabilities. It doesn't attempt to run any kind of exploit, and can't guarantee that your system is secure, but rather helps you verifying whether your system has the known correct mitigations in place.
