Thank you for taking the time to test this, James!

You are correct, these aren't necessarily specific to arm64. However,
right now, we are not allocating per-CPU shadow stacks anywhere else,
so this was a natural place for the helper functions. Would you prefer
me to move these to kernel/scs.c instead?
