I will fix it.

The kernel command-line options "no_cet_shstk" and "no_cet_ibt" turn
off CET features for the whole system.  The GLIBC tunable
"glibc.tune.hwcap=-SHSTK,-IBT" turns off CET features for the current
shell.  Another GLIBC tunable "glibc.tune.x86_shstk=<on, permissive>"
determines, in the current shell, how dlopen() deals with SHSTK legacy
lib's.

So, if ld.so's ELF header has SHSTK/IBT, and CET is enabled in the
current shell, it will run with CET enabled.  If the application
executable and all its dependent libraries have CET, ld.so runs the
application with CET enabled.  Otherwise ld.so turns off SHSTK (and/or
sets up legacy bitmap for IBT) before passing to the application.
