How do threads work? Can a user program mremap() its shadow stack to
make it bigger?

Also, did you add all the needed checks to make get_user_pages(),
access_process_vm(), etc fail when called on the shadow stack? (Or at
least fail if they're requesting write access and the FORCE bit isn't
set.)

Please don't add more mode-dependent #defines. Also, please try to
avoid adding any new code that looks at TIF_IA32 or similar. Uses of
that bit are generally bugs, and the bit itself should get removed
some day. If you need to make a guess, use in_compat_syscall() or
similar if appropriate.

TASK_SIZE_MAX, please. TASK_SIZE is weird and is usually the wrong
thing to use.

Please don't populate if do_mmap() failed.

Please check the actual value that do_mmap() would return on error.
(IS_ERR, 0, MAP_FAILED -- I don't remember.)

if tsk != current, then this will malfunction, right? What is it
intended to do?

I'm having trouble imagining why the kernel would ever want to
automatically free the shadow stack vma. What is this for?
