I'm no regexp master, so I'd be glad if someone could help improve
this :D I only tried to optimize it using online tools, and they
eventually didn't help.
It could probably be replaced with a pipe to `cut` or `tr`, I'll
take a look a bit later if there won't be any other proposals.

1. One of my test cases was based on Sami's ClangCFI x86 series from
   LKML (the one that was getting patched by objtool :P).
2. ClangCFI is present on ARM64 and it can receive FG-KASLR in a
   future, why not make it work together from the start?

Re "won't do" -- sorry for trying to hijack this thread a bit, but
did I miss something? The last comments I've read were that LLVM
tools need to change their approach for CFI on x86, and Sami went
redo it, but I can't recall any "life-time" nacks.

Thanks,
Al
