Subject[PATCH v4 05/17] ctype: Work around Clang -mbranch-protection=none bug
Date
In preparation for building efi/libstub with -mbranch-protection=none
(EFI does not support branch protection features[1]), add no-op code
to work around a Clang bug that emits an unwanted .note.gnu.property
section for object files without code[2].
