Peter, can you take patches 4-8 into -tip? I think it'd make sense
to keep them together. Steven, it sounds like you're okay with the
changes (i.e. Sami showed the one concern you had was already handled)?
Getting these into v5.10 would be really really nice.

I'd really like to get the tree-spanning prerequisites nailed down
for this series. It's been difficult to coordinate given the multiple
maintainers. :)

Specifically these patches:

Peter Zijlstra (1):
objtool: Add a pass for generating __mcount_loc

Sami Tolvanen (4):
objtool: Don't autodetect vmlinux.o
tracing: move function tracer options to Kconfig
tracing: add support for objtool mcount
x86, build: use objtool mcount
