Won't as in the lclang-cfi as it exists today. And I've understood that
this CFI model is a keeper. It is true that Sami has been working on an
alternative KCFI, but the little I can make of this proposal, it
still needs serious work. Also see here:

  https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20220211133803.GV23216@worktop.programming.kicks-ass.net

Specifically, I object to the existence of any __*cfi_check_fail symbol
on the grounds that it will bloat the code (and makes thinking about the
whole speculation angle more painful than it needs to be).
