Is Intel CET supported now in any of the versions or any Linux distros?

Intel CET is available in the latest Intel CPUs; Intel CET support is available in compilers; Intel CET on linux can be emulated with Intel SDE.

Now I wonder whether Intel CET is supported in any of linux distros (in the kernel side)? As Clear Linux is one linux distro that is highly related to Intel, I suppose that I can find the best answers here.

Intel Control-Flow Enforcement Technology is supported in Tiger Lake (Mobile) and is targeted for future Server CPUs. Our compiler and glibc support this feature, but the upstream kernel does not yet. As and when it does, we can recompile the whole Clear Linux distro with it turned on.
