Shadow Stack provides protection against function return address
corruption.  It is active when the processor supports it, the kernel has
CONFIG_X86_SHADOW_STACK 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.

v25:
- Remove X86_CET and use X86_SHADOW_STACK directly.
v24:
- Update for the splitting X86_CET to X86_SHADOW_STACK and X86_IBT.

+	  Shadow Stack protection is a hardware feature that detects function
+	  return address corruption.  This helps 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.
+	  See Documentation/x86/intel_cet.rst for more information.
