Subject[PATCH v26 7/9] x86/vdso: Introduce ENDBR macro
Date
ENDBR is a special new instruction for the Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT)
component of CET. IBT prevents attacks by ensuring that (most) indirect
branches and function calls may only land at ENDBR instructions. Branches
that don't follow the rules will result in control flow (#CF) exceptions.

ENDBR is a noop when IBT is unsupported or disabled. Most ENDBR
instructions are inserted automatically by the compiler, but branch
targets written in assembly must have ENDBR added manually.

Introduce ENDBR64/ENDBR32 macros.

v25:
- Change from using the compiler's cet.h back to just ENDBR64/ENDBR32,
since the information is already known, and keep it simple.
