This patch implements the following:
- Emit PACBTI-M build attributes in libunwind asm files
- Authenticate LR in DWARF32 using PACBTI
Use Armv8.1-M.Main PACBTI extension to authenticate the return address
(stored in the LR register) before moving it to the PC (IP) register.
The AUTG instruction is used with the candidate return address, the CFA,
and the authentication code that is retrieved from the saved
- Authenticate LR in EHABI using PACBTI
Authenticate the contents of the LR register using Armv8.1-M.Main PACBTI
A new frame unwinding instruction is introduced (0xb4). This
instruction pops out of the stack the return address authentication
code, which is then used in conjunction with the SP and the next-to-be
instruction pointer to perform authentication.
This authentication code is popped into a new register,
UNW_ARM_PSEUDO_PAC, which is a pseudo-register.
This patch is part of a series that adds support for the PACBTI-M extension of
the Armv8.1-M architecture, as detailed here:
The PACBTI-M specification can be found in the Armv8-M Architecture Reference
