Oh, I missed that. Sorry about that. Obviously x86 instruction
decoder is also used in perf. The question is, should we just disable
-Wnested-externs for perf like we did for the objtool. Or since we got
BUILD_BUG() implementation in tools simply disable -Wnested-externs for
all tools altogether? By throwing it out of EXTRA_WARNINGS.
