Detailed Description

Pass that replaces ret instructions with a jmp to __x86_return_thunk.

This corresponds to -mfunction-return=thunk-extern or attribute((function_return("thunk-extern").

This pass is a minimal implementation necessary to help mitigate RetBleed for the Linux kernel.

Should support for thunk or thunk-inline be necessary in the future, then this pass should be combined with x86-retpoline-thunks which already has machinery to emit thunks. Until then, YAGNI.

This pass is very similar to x86-lvi-ret.
