[didn't look at the code yet, just at the docs]

Please add a docs section describing how to handle leaf functions.
If they are not handled yet, no need to change the implementation in these pathches -- ok to do it later.

(it's your native tongue, not mine, though)

Provide short comparison with RFG (more instructions, less memory, same racy attack)

link to wikipedia maybe?

... due to return branch predictor (or some such)

Say something about attacks that first try to discover the secret location of the shadow call stack.
side channels, thread spaying, whatever you have.

Please add a section that shows the assembly for the following example:

Forgot to submit this comment: It's used both ways across LLVM but I chose to go with this one just because that's how the PrologEpilogInserter pass wrote it.
