On PPC64 we randomly get:

/bin/sh: 1: ./tools/objtool/objtool: not found
make[2]: *** [arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso/vgettimeofday-64.o] Error 127
/linux/arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso/Makefile:77: recipe for target
'arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso/vgettimeofday-64.o' failed
make[2]: *** Deleting file 'arch/powerpc/kernel/vdso/vgettimeofday-64.o'
make[1]: *** [vdso_prepare] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
/linux/arch/powerpc/Makefile:423: recipe for target 'vdso_prepare' failed
make: *** [__sub-make] Error 2
Makefile:219: recipe for target '__sub-make' failed

This is linkely because prepare: target depends on vdso_prepare and
prepare: target depends on objtool, but vdso_prepare: doesn't depend on

I'm not sure it is correct to run objtool mcount on VDSO as it is kind
of useless. Only VDSO64 seems to call objtool, not VDSO32.
