Clang and LLD should be sufficient.

Oops, I forgot to include that.

Changes in v2:
- Changed the compiler patch to encode arm64 target and type details
in the ESR, and updated the kernel error handling patch accordingly.
- Changed the compiler patch to embed the x86_64 type hash in a valid
instruction to avoid special casing objtool instruction decoding, and
added a __cfi_ symbol for the preamble. Changed the kernel error
handling and manual type annotations to match.
- Dropped the .kcfi_types section as that’s no longer needed by
objtool, and changed the objtool patch to simply ignore the __cfi_
preambles falling through.
- Dropped the .kcfi_traps section on arm64 as it’s no longer needed,
and moved the trap look-up code behind CONFIG_ARCH_USES_CFI_TRAPS,
which is selected only for x86_64.
- Dropped __nocfi attributes from arm64 code where CFI was disabled
due to address space confusion issues, and added type annotations to
relevant assembly functions.
- Dropped __nocfi from __init.

It fixes a type mismatch, so in that sense it's relevant.

The plan is to replace the current CFI implementation. Does reusing
the kbuild variable names cause a problem?
