Subject: [PATCH 2/4] Add ENDBRANCH64 and ENDBRANCH32 macro definitions

Define ENDBRANCH64 and ENDBRANCH32 macros to endbr64 and endbr32 instructions,
respectively, in case the flag CET_IBT is set. If the flag is not set, the
macros are defined to nothing.

These macros will later be used to properly add endbranch instruction to
x86 and i386 assembly functions.
