[PATCH v5 0/2] Fix CET shadow stack token busy bit clear issue

Sheng Wei

If CET shadows stack feature enabled in SMM and stack switch is enabled.
When code execute from SMM handler to SMM exception, CPU will check SMM
exception shadow stack token busy bit if it is cleared or not.
If it is set, it will trigger #DF exception.
If it is not set, CPU will set the busy bit when enter SMM exception.
So, the busy bit should be cleared when return back form SMM exception to
SMM handler. Otherwise, keeping busy bit 1 will cause to trigger #DF
exception when enter SMM exception next time.
So, we use instruction SAVEPREVSSP, CLRSSBSY and RSTORSSP to clear the
shadow stack token busy bit before RETF instruction in SMM exception.
Since open CI is using NASM 2.14.02, it has not supported CET instructions
yet. DB-encoded CET instructions will to be removed after open CI update to
NASM 2.15.01.

2 Structure interrupt shadow stack memory in InitShadowStack().
3 Update commit comment.
