Well, my ANNOTATE_UNSAFE_RET trick didn't quite work either, as it
results in .discard.retpoline_safe pointing to .rodata when IBT is
enabled.

Instead I'll just do OBJECT_FILES_NON_STANDARD_rodata.o.  That shouldn't
break LTO/IBT because the linked code lives in .rodata anyway.

Will have patches tomorrow, if they pass bot testing.
