Subject[RFC 17/17] arm64: compile the kernel with ptrauth -msign-return-address
Date
Compile all functions with two ptrauth instructions: paciasp in the
prologue to sign the return address, and autiasp in the epilogue to
authenticate the return address. This should help protect the kernel
against attacks using return-oriented programming.

CONFIG_ARM64_PTR_AUTH enables pointer auth for both userspace and the
kernel.
