Subject[PATCH v6 12/33] objtool: arm64: Enable stack validation for arm64
Date
Add build option to run stack validation at compile time.

When requiring stack validation, jump tables are disabled as it
simplifies objtool analysis (without having to introduce unreliable
artifacs). In local testing, this does not appear to significaly
affect final binary size nor system performance.
