Note that there's also a call to scs_save in cpu_die, because the
current task's shadow stack pointer is only stored in x18 and we don't
want to lose it.

TSK_TI_SCS is already defined, so yes, we could move this to
cpu_switch_to. I would still prefer to have the overflow check that's
in scs_thread_switch though.
