Subject: [PATCH v4 06/15] ftrace: Use an opaque type for functions not
 callable from C

With CONFIG_CFI_CLANG, the compiler changes function references to point
to the CFI jump table. As ftrace_call, ftrace_regs_call, and mcount_call
are not called from C, use DECLARE_ASM_FUNC_SYMBOL to declare them.
