Subject[PATCH] objtool: Fix GCC 8 cold subfunction detection for aliased functions
Date
The kbuild test robot reported the following issue:

kernel/time/posix-stubs.o: warning: objtool: sys_ni_posix_timers.cold.1()+0x0: unreachable instruction

This file creates symbol aliases for the sys_ni_posix_timers() function.
So there are multiple ELF function symbols for the same function:

23: 0000000000000150 26 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 1 __x64_sys_timer_create
24: 0000000000000150 26 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 1 sys_ni_posix_timers
25: 0000000000000150 26 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 1 __ia32_sys_timer_create
26: 0000000000000150 26 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 1 __x64_sys_timer_gettime

Here's the corresponding cold subfunction:

11: 0000000000000000 45 FUNC LOCAL DEFAULT 6 sys_ni_posix_timers.cold.1

When analyzing overlapping functions, objtool only looks at the first
one in the symbol list. The rest of the functions are basically ignored
because they point to instructions which have already been analyzed.

So in this case it analyzes the __x64_sys_timer_create() function, but
then it fails to recognize that its cold subfunction is
sys_ni_posix_timers.cold.1(), because the names are different.

Make the subfunction detection a little smarter by associating each
subfunction with the first function which jumps to it, since that's the
one which will be analyzed.
