Can we drop the MSR_IA32 prefix for the individual bits? Mostly to yield
shorter line lengths, but also because it's more or less redundant info,
and in some ways unhelpful as it's hard to quickly differentiate between
"this is an MSR index" and "this is a bit/mask for an MSR".

My vote would also be to use BIT() or BIT_ULL(). The SDM defines the flags
by their (decimal) bit number. Manually converting the bits to masks makes
it difficult to check for correctness.

E.g.

#define CET_SHSTK_EN BIT(0)
#define CET_WRSS_EN BIT(1)
#define CET_ENDBR_EN BIT(2)
#define CET_LEG_IW_EN BIT(3)
#define CET_NO_TRACK_EN BIT(4)
#define CET_WAIT_ENDBR BIT(5)

This particular define, the so called BITMAP_MASK, is no longer used in the
IBT series. IMO it'd be better off dropping this mask as it's not clear
from the name that this is really nothing more than a mask for a virtual
address, e.g. at first glance (for someone without CET knowledge) it looks
like bits 63:12 hold a bitmap as opposed to holding a pointer to a bitmap.
