SubjectRe: [PATCH v10 00/13] arm64: Branch Target Identification support

i was playing with this and it seems the kernel does not add
PROT_BTI to non-static executables (i.e. there is an interpreter).

i thought any elf that the kernel maps would get PROT_BTI from the
kernel. (i want to remove the mprotect in glibc when not necessary)

i tested by linking a hello world exe with -Wl,-z,force-bti (and
verified that the property note is there) and expected it to crash
(with SIGILL) when the dynamic linker jumps to _start in the exe,
but it executed without errors (if i do the mprotect in glibc then
i get SIGILL as expected).

is this deliberate? does the kernel map static exe and dynamic
linked exe differently?

i cant tell looking at the patches where this logic comes from.
