Control-flow Enforcement Technology (CET) provides protection against
Return/Jump-Oriented Programming (ROP/JOP) attack. There're two CET
sub-features: Shadow Stack (SHSTK) and Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT).
SHSTK is to prevent ROP programming and IBT is to prevent JOP programming.

Several parts in KVM have been updated to provide VM CET support, including:
CPUID/XSAVES config, MSR pass-through, user space MSR access interface, 
vmentry/vmexit config, nested VM etc. These patches have dependency on CET
kernel patches for xsaves support and CET definitions, e.g., MSR and related
feature flags.

CET kernel patches are here:
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200429220732.31602-1-yu-cheng.yu@intel.com

v13:
- Added CET definitions as a separate patch to facilitate KVM test.
- Disabled CET support in KVM if unrestricted_guest is turned off since
  in this case CET related instructions/infrastructure cannot be emulated
  well.

v12:
- Fixed a few issues per Sean and Paolo's review feeback.
- Refactored patches to make them properly arranged.
- Removed unnecessary hard-coded CET states for host/guest.
- Added compile-time assertions for vmcs_field_to_offset_table to detect
  mismatch of the field type and field encoding number.
- Added a custom MSR MSR_KVM_GUEST_SSP for guest active SSP save/restore.
- Rebased patches to 5.7-rc3.

v11:
- Fixed a guest vmentry failure issue when guest reboots.
- Used vm_xxx_control_{set, clear}bit() to avoid side effect, it'll
  clear cached data instead of pure VMCS field bits.
- Added vcpu->arch.guest_supported_xss dedidated for guest runtime mask,
  this avoids supported_xss overwritten issue caused by an old qemu.
- Separated vmentry/vmexit state setting with CR0/CR4 dependency check
  to make the patch more clear.
- Added CET VMCS states in dump_vmcs() for debugging purpose.
- Other refactor based on testing.
- This patch serial is built on top of below branch and CET kernel patches
  for seeking xsaves support:
  https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm.git/log/?h=cpu-caps

v10:
- Refactored code per Sean's review feedback.
- Added CET support for nested VM.
- Removed fix-patch for CPUID(0xd,N) enumeration as this part is done
  by Paolo and Sean.
- This new patchset is based on Paolo's queued cpu_caps branch.
- Modified patch per XSAVES related change.
- Consolidated KVM unit-test patch with KVM patches.

v9:
- Refactored msr-check functions per Sean's feedback.
- Fixed a few issues per Sean's suggestion.
- Rebased patch to kernel-v5.4.
- Moved CET CPUID feature bits and CR4.CET to last patch.

v8:
- Addressed Jim and Sean's feedback on: 1) CPUID(0xD,i) enumeration. 2)
  sanity check when configure guest CET. 3) function improvement.
- Added more sanity check functions.
- Set host vmexit default status so that guest won't leak CET status to
  host when vmexit.
- Added CR0.WP vs. CR4.CET mutual constrains.

v7:
- Rebased patch to kernel v5.3
- Sean suggested to change CPUID(0xd, n) enumeration code as alined with
  existing one, and I think it's better to make the fix as an independent patch 
  since XSS MSR are being used widely on X86 platforms.
- Check more host and guest status before configure guest CET
  per Sean's feedback.
- Add error-check before guest accesses CET MSRs per Sean's feedback.
- Other minor fixes suggested by Sean.

v6:
- Rebase patch to kernel v5.2.
- Move CPUID(0xD, n>=1) helper to a seperate patch.
- Merge xsave size fix with other patch.
- Other minor fixes per community feedback.

v5:
- Rebase patch to kernel v5.1.
- Wrap CPUID(0xD, n>=1) code to a helper function.
- Pass through MSR_IA32_PL1_SSP and MSR_IA32_PL2_SSP to Guest.
- Add Co-developed-by expression in patch description.
- Refine patch description.

v4:
- Add Sean's patch for loading Guest fpu state before access XSAVES
  managed CET MSRs.
- Melt down CET bits setting into CPUID configuration patch.
- Add VMX interface to query Host XSS.
- Check Host and Guest XSS support bits before set Guest XSS.
- Make Guest SHSTK and IBT feature enabling independent.
- Do not report CET support to Guest when Host CET feature is Disabled.

v3:
- Modified patches to make Guest CET independent to Host enabling.
- Added patch 8 to add user space access for Guest CET MSR access.
- Modified code comments and patch description to reflect changes.

v2:
- Re-ordered patch sequence, combined one patch.
- Added more description for CET related VMCS fields.
- Added Host CET capability check while enabling Guest CET loading bit.
- Added Host CET capability check while reporting Guest CPUID(EAX=7, EXC=0).
- Modified code in reporting Guest CPUID(EAX=D,ECX>=1), make it clearer.
- Added Host and Guest XSS mask check while setting bits for Guest XSS.
