BTI has effect on the jump target\case because a landing pad is required for each and every target.
As I see that would not hurt here.

The unwinder shall take care of the PAC signed return address if reads the LR from the stack.
DWARF contains an entry where the LR is got signed\authenticated.

I’m wondering would be simpler or possible to transform the DWARD to ORC.
