Subject[PATCH 0/8] arm64: ARMv8.5-A: Branch Target Identification support
Date
This patch implements support for ARMv8.5-A Branch Target Identification
(BTI), which is a control flow integrity protection feature introduced
as part of the ARMv8.5-A extensions [1].

The series is based on v5.2-rc1.

Patch 1 is from Yu-Cheng Yu of Intel, providing generic support
for parsing the ELF NT_GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE_0 note. It makes sense to
share this mechanism with x86 rather than reinventing it.


Various things need nailing down before this can be upstreamable:

* Not tested with hugepages yet. (If anyone has any suggestions about
how best to do that, please shout!)

* The NT_GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE_0 ELF note parsing support is not upstream
yet and may be subject to further change.

Todo:

* Add BTI protection in the vDSO, so that user code can no longer
jump to random locations in there. Lack of this protection doesn't
break anything, however.


Tested on the ARM Fast Model.

Notes:

* GCC 9 can compile backwards-compatible BTI-enabled code with
-mbranch-protection=bti or -mbranch-protection=standard.

* Binutils trunk supports the new ELF note, but this isn't in a release
yet.

Creation of a BTI-enabled binary requires _everything_ linked in to
be BTI-enabled. For now ld --force-bti can be used to override this,
but some things may break until the required C library support is in
place.

There is no straightforward way to mark a .s file as BTI-enabled:
scraping the output from gcc -S works as a quick hack for now.

readelf -n can be used to examing the program properties in an ELF
file.

* Runtime mmap() and mprotect() can be used to enable BTI on a
page-by-page basis using the new PROT_BTI_GUARDED, but the code in
the affected pages still needs to be written or compiled to contain
the appopriate BTI landing pads.
