Note that I picked up this patch from Peter's original email, to which
I included a link in the commit message, but it wasn't officially
submitted as a patch. However, the previous discussion seems to have
died, so I included the patch in this series, as it cleanly solves the
problem of whitelisting non-call references to __fentry__. I was
hoping for Peter and Steven to comment on how they prefer to proceed
