Subject[PATCH v11 07/12] arm64: efi: restore x18 if it was corrupted
From
If we detect a corrupted x18, restore the register before jumping back
to potentially SCS instrumented code. This is safe, because the wrapper
is called with preemption disabled and a separate shadow stack is used
for interrupt handling.
