Description

Clear busy flag in supervisor shadow stack token reference by m64. Subsequent to marking the shadow stack as not busy the SSP is loaded with value 0.

Operation

IF (CR4.CET = 0)
    THEN #UD; FI;
IF (IA32_S_CET.SH_STK_EN = 0)
    THEN #UD; FI;
IF CPL > 0
    THEN GP(0); FI;
SSP_LA = Linear_Address(mem operand)
IF SSP_LA not aligned to 8 bytes
    THEN #GP(0); FI;
expected_token_value = SSP_LA | BUSY_BIT
                                                    (* busy bit - bit position 0 - must be set *)
new_token_value = SSP_LA
                                                    (* Clear the busy bit *)
IF shadow_stack_lock_cmpxchg8b(SSP_LA, new_token_value, expected_token_value) != expected_token_value
    invalid_token := 1; FI
(* Set the CF if invalid token was detected *)
RFLAGS.CF = (invalid_token == 1) ? 1 : 0;
RFLAGS.ZF,PF,AF,OF,SF := 0;
SSP := 0

Flags Affected

CF is set if an invalid token was detected, else it is cleared. ZF, PF, AF, OF, and SF are cleared.

Protected Mode Exceptions

#UD

If the LOCK prefix is used.

If CR4.CET = 0.

IF IA32_S_CET.SH_STK_EN = 0.

#GP(0)

If memory operand linear address not aligned to 8 bytes.

If a memory operand effective address is outside the CS, DS, ES, FS, or GS segment limit.

If destination is located in a non-writeable segment.

If the DS, ES, FS, or GS register is used to access memory and it contains a NULL segment selector.

If CPL is not 0.

#SS(0) If a memory operand effective address is outside the SS segment limit.
#PF(fault-code) If a page fault occurs.

Real-Address Mode Exceptions

#UD The CLRSSBSY instruction is not recognized in real-address mode.

Virtual-8086 Mode Exceptions

#UD The CLRSSBSY instruction is not recognized in virtual-8086 mode.

Compatibility Mode Exceptions

#UD Same exceptions as in protected mode.
#GP(0) Same exceptions as in protected mode.

#GP(0)

If memory operand linear address not aligned to 8 bytes.

If CPL is not 0.

If the memory address is in a non-canonical form.

If token is invalid.

#SS(0) If a memory address referencing the SS segment is in a non-canonical form.
#PF(fault-code) If a page fault occurs.
