Subject[PATCH v3 3/3] x86, stackvalidate: Add asm frame pointer setup macros
Date
Add some helper macros for asm functions so that they can comply with
stackvalidate.

The FUNC_ENTER and FUNC_RETURN macros help asm functions save, set up,
and restore frame pointers.

The RET_NOVALIDATE and FILE_NOVALIDATE macros can be used to whitelist
the few locations which need a return instruction outside of a callable
function.
