Subject[PATCH v19 02/25] x86/cet/shstk: Add Kconfig option for user-mode control-flow protection
Date
Shadow Stack provides protection against function return address
corruption. It is active when the processor supports it, the kernel has
CONFIG_X86_CET enabled, and the application is built for the feature.
This is only implemented for the 64-bit kernel. When it is enabled, legacy
non-Shadow Stack applications continue to work, but without protection.

+ Control-flow protection is a set of hardware features which place
+ additional restrictions on indirect branches. These help
+ mitigate ROP attacks. Applications must be enabled to use it,
+ and old userspace does not get protection "for free".
+ Support for this feature is present on Tiger Lake family of
+ processors released in 2020 or later. Enabling this feature
+ increases kernel text size by 3.7 KB.
