How does this interact with UFFDIO_REGISTER?

Is there an explicit design decision on whether FOLL_FORCE should be
able to write to shadow stacks? I'm guessing the answer is "yes,
FOLL_FORCE should be able to write to shadow stacks"? It might make
sense to add documentation for this.

Should the kernel enforce that two shadow stacks must have a guard
page between them so that they can not be directly adjacent, so that
if you have too much recursion, you can't end up corrupting an
adjacent shadow stack?
