Subject[PATCH v19 1/7] x86/cet/ibt: Update Kconfig for user-mode Indirect Branch Tracking
Date
Indirect branch tracking is a hardware security feature that verifies near
indirect call/jump instructions arrive at intended targets, which are
labeled by the compiler with ENDBR opcodes. If such instructions reach
unlabeled locations, the processor raises control-protection faults.

Check the compiler is up-to-date at config time.
