Subject: [PATCH] gcc-plugins/stackleak: Use noinstr in favor of notrace

While the stackleak plugin was already using notrace, objtool is now a
bit more picky. Update the notrace uses to noinstr. Silences these
warnings:

vmlinux.o: warning: objtool: do_syscall_64()+0x9: call to stackleak_track_stack() leaves .noinstr.text section

Is it correct to exclude .noinstr.text here? That means any functions called in
there will have their stack utilization untracked. This doesn't seem right to me,
though. Shouldn't stackleak_track_stack() just be marked noinstr instead?
