[PATCH] objtool: Fix objtool fallthrough detection with function padding




When GCC adds NOP padding between functions, those NOPs aren't
associated with a function symbol, which breaks objtool's detection of a
function falling through to another function.  Instead it shows
confusing errors like:

  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_util.o: warning: objtool: cfi_qry_mode_on()+0x8b: return with modified stack frame
  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_util.o: warning: objtool: cfi_qry_mode_on()+0x0: stack state mismatch: cfa1=-4-32 cfa2=7+8
  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_cmdset_0002.o: warning: objtool: fixup_use_fwh_lock()+0x8: unknown stack-related register move
  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_cmdset_0002.o: warning: objtool: fixup_use_fwh_lock()+0x0: stack state mismatch: cfa1=6+16 cfa2=7+8
  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_cmdset_0002.o: warning: objtool: do_otp_write()+0xa: unsupported stack pointer realignment
  drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_cmdset_0002.o: warning: objtool: do_otp_write()+0x0: stack state mismatch: cfa1=-4-40 cfa2=7+8
