SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 09/17] arm64: disable function graph tracing with SCS

I'm guessing it's difficult to always figure out the SCS slot for an
instrumented callsite unless we pass this explicitly from the ftrace
entry code, so we'd probably have to change some common infrastructure
for that.

We have a similar issue with pointer authentication, and we're solving
that with -fpatchable-function-entry, which allows us to hook the
callsite before it does anything with the return address. IIUC we could
use the same mechanism here (and avoid introducing a third).

Are there plans to implement -fpatchable-function-entry on the clang
side?

Thanks,
Mark.
