[PATCH 1/2] objtool: Don't warn for intra function calls in alternative




From: Andi Kleen <ak@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

objtool suggests to put intra function calls, like used in
stuff rsb, into alternative, but then starts warning about the
alternative section too. Avoid these warnings.

Needed for the next patch.
