  Thanks Sean!
  My original purpose is to re-use the macro cpu_x86_cet_enabled() to
  check host CET status, for somehow, the check is not there, but to resolve
  your below question, I need to use the macro to check it, so will keep
  this include and add the check in next version.

Yes, need add back the check. v3 patch changed the CET CPUID enumeration to
guest, and lost the check from then on.
