The _get_ssp intrinsic can be used to retrieve the
shadow stack pointer, independent of the current arch -- in
contract with the rdsspd and the rdsspq intrinsics.
Also, this intrinsic returns zero on CPUs which don't
support CET. The rdssp[d|q] instruction is decoded as nop,
essentially just returning the input operand, which is zero.
Example result of compilation:
xorl %eax, %eax movl %eax, %ecx rdsspq %rcx # NOP when CET is not supported movq %rcx, %rax # return zero
