// This pass inserts BTI instructions at the start of every function and basic
// block which could be indirectly called. The hardware will (when enabled)
// trap when an indirect branch or call instruction targets an instruction
// which is not a valid BTI instruction. This is intended to guard against
// control-flow hijacking attacks. Note that this does not do anything for RET
// instructions, as they can be more precisely protected by return address
// signing.
