Subject: [PATCH v5 07/22] lkdtm: Emit an indirect call for CFI tests

Clang can convert the indirect calls in lkdtm_CFI_FORWARD_PROTO into
direct calls. Move the call into a noinline function that accepts the
target address as an argument to ensure the compiler actually emits an
indirect call instead.
