Yeah, as a tested example, this works for x86_64, and based on what you
had, I'd expect it to work on arm64 too:

#include <stdio.h>

static __attribute__((noinline))
void set_return_addr(unsigned long *expected, unsigned long *addr)
{
    /* Use of volatile is to make sure final write isn't seen as a dead store. */
    unsigned long * volatile *ret_addr = (unsigned long **)__builtin_frame_address(0) + 1;

    /* Make sure we've found the right place on the stack before writing it. */
    if (*ret_addr == expected)
        *ret_addr = addr;
}

volatile int force_label;
int main(void)
{
    do {
        /* Keep labels in scope. */
        if (force_label)
            goto normal;
        if (force_label)
            goto redirected;

        set_return_addr(&&normal, &&redirected);
normal:
        printf("I should be skipped\n");
        break;
redirected:
        printf("Redirected\n");
    } while (0);

    return 0;
}


It does _not_ work under Clang, though, which I'm still looking at.
