Subject[PATCH v13 1/8] x86/cet/ibt: Add Kconfig option for user-mode Indirect Branch Tracking
Date
Introduce Kconfig option X86_BRANCH_TRACKING_USER.

Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT) provides protection against CALL-/JMP-
oriented programming attacks. It is active when the kernel has this
feature enabled, and the processor and the application support it.
When this feature is enabled, legacy non-IBT applications continue to
work, but without IBT protection.

v13:
- Update help text, and change default to N.
- Change X86_INTEL_* to X86_*.

v10:
- Change build-time CET check to config depends on.
