SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH v6 22/26] x86/cet/shstk: ELF header parsing of Shadow Stack

What's the status of this series? I don't see anything in linux-next
yet.

For describing ELF features, Arm has recently adopted
NT_GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE_0, with properties closely modelled on
GNU_PROPERTY_X86_FEATURE_1_AND etc. [1]

So, arm64 will be need something like this patch for supporting new
features (such as the Branch Target Identification feature of ARMv8.5-A
[2]).

If this series isn't likely to merge soon, can we split this patch into
generic and x86-specific parts and handle them separately?

It would be good to see the generic ELF note parsing move to common
code -- I'll take a look and comment in more detail.

Generally we seem to collect all ELF definitions in <linux/uapi/elf.h>,
including arch-specific ones.

Is a new header really needed here?

Can we dummy no-op functions in the common headers to avoid this
ifdeffery? Logically all arches will always do this step, even if it's
a no-op today.

IIUC, note type codes are namespaced by the note name. This section
currently only seems to have codes for name == "LINUX".

There are conflicts: for example NT_GNU_ABI_TAG == NT_PRSTATUS.

We should probably split out the codes for name == "GNU" into a separate
list, otherwise people are likely to get confused.

As noted above, can the GNU_PRPOERTY_<arch>_* definitions just go in
here instead of a separate header?
