SubjectRe: [PATCH 12/18] arm64: reserve x18 only with Shadow Call Stack

Ah, ok. The tradeoff for maintainers to consider, either:
1. one less GPR for ALL kernel code or
2. remember not to use x18 in inline as lest you potentially break SCS

This patch is 2 (the earlier patch was 1). Maybe we don't write
enough inline asm that this will be hard to remember, and we do have
CI in Android to watch for this (on mainline, not sure about -next).

Either way,
