Subject: [PATCH v12 01/10] KVM: VMX: Introduce CET VMCS fields and flags

CET(Control-flow Enforcement Technology) is a CPU feature used to prevent
Return/Jump-Oriented Programming(ROP/JOP) attacks. It provides the following
sub-features to defend against ROP/JOP style control-flow subversion attacks:

Shadow Stack (SHSTK):
  A second stack for program which is used exclusively for control transfer
  operations.

Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT):
  Code branching protection to defend against jump/call oriented programming.

Several new CET MSRs are defined in kernel to support CET:
  MSR_IA32_{U,S}_CET: Controls the CET settings for user mode and kernel mode
  respectively.

  MSR_IA32_PL{0,1,2,3}_SSP: Stores shadow stack pointers for CPL-0,1,2,3
  protection respectively.

  MSR_IA32_INT_SSP_TAB: Stores base address of shadow stack pointer table.

Two XSAVES state bits are introduced for CET:
  IA32_XSS:[bit 11]: Control saving/restoring user mode CET states
  IA32_XSS:[bit 12]: Control saving/restoring kernel mode CET states.

Six VMCS fields are introduced for CET:
  {HOST,GUEST}_S_CET: Stores CET settings for kernel mode.
  {HOST,GUEST}_SSP: Stores shadow stack pointer of current task/thread.
  {HOST,GUEST}_INTR_SSP_TABLE: Stores base address of shadow stack pointer
  table.

If VM_EXIT_LOAD_HOST_CET_STATE = 1, the host CET states are restored from below
VMCS fields at VM-Exit:
  HOST_S_CET
  HOST_SSP
  HOST_INTR_SSP_TABLE

If VM_ENTRY_LOAD_GUEST_CET_STATE = 1, the guest CET states are loaded from below
VMCS fields at VM-Entry:
  GUEST_S_CET
  GUEST_SSP
  GUEST_INTR_SSP_TABLE
