I think Andy and I danced around this last time. Let me try to say it
more explicitly.

I want CET kernel enabling to able to be disconnected from the on-disk
binary. I want a binary compiled with CET to be able to disable it, and
I want a binary not compiled with CET to be able to enable it. I want
different threads in a process to be able to each have different CET status.

Which JITs was this tested with? I think as a bare minimum we need to
know that this design can accommodate _a_ modern JIT. It would be
horrible if the browser javascript engines couldn't use this design, for
instance.
