// This file defines a pass that enables Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT) as part
// of Control-Flow Enforcement Technology (CET).
// The pass adds ENDBR (End Branch) machine instructions at the beginning of
// each basic block or function that is referenced by an indrect jump/call
// instruction.
// The ENDBR instructions have a NOP encoding and as such are ignored in
// targets that do not support CET IBT mechanism.
