Subject[PATCH] objtool: Fix sibling call detection logic
Date
With some configs, objtool reports the following warning:

arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.o: warning: objtool: ftrace_modify_code_direct()+0x2d: sibling call from callable instruction with modified stack frame

The instruction it's complaining about isn't actually a sibling call.
It's just a normal jump to an address inside the function. Objtool
thought it was a sibling call because the instruction's jump_dest wasn't
initialized because the function was supposed to be ignored due to its
use of sync_core().

Objtool ended up validating the function instead of ignoring it because
it didn't properly recognize a sibling call to the function. So fix the
sibling call logic. Also add a warning to catch ignored functions being
validated so we'll get a more useful error message next time.
