Subject[PATCH] objtool: Be lenient about -Wundef
Some libelf versions use undefined macros, which combined with newer GCC
makes for errors from system headers. This isn't overly useful to fail
compiling objtool for.

Error as seen:

cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
In file included from arch/x86/../../elf.h:10,
from arch/x86/decode.c:14:
/usr/include/libelf/gelf.h:25:5: error: "__LIBELF_INTERNAL__" is not defined, evaluates to 0 [-Werror=undef]

For this reason, skip -Wundef on objtool.
