Please do not compute out-of-bounds pointers and then compare them
against an expected maximum pointer. Computing an out-of-bounds
pointer is undefined behavior according to the C99 specification,
section "6.5.6 Additive operators", paragraph 8; and in this case,
n->n_descsz is 32 bits wide, which means that even if the compiler
isn't doing anything funny, if you're operating on addresses in the
last 4GiB of virtual memory and the pointer wraps around, this could
break.
In particular, if anyone ever uses this code in a 32-bit kernel, this
is going to blow up.
Please use size comparisons instead of pointer comparisons.

Theoretical UB.

UB, like in NOTE_SIZE_BAD().

So for non-static binaries, the ELF headers of ld.so determine whether
CET will be on or off for the entire system, right? Is the intent here
that ld.so should start with CET enabled, and then either use the
compatibility bitmap or turn CET off at runtime if the executable or
one of the libraries doesn't actually work with CET?
