Subject: [PATCH v5 16/22] objtool: Preserve special st_shndx indexes in elf_update_symbol

elf_update_symbol fails to preserve the special st_shndx values
between [SHN_LORESERVE, SHN_HIRESERVE], which results in it
converting SHN_ABS entries into SHN_UNDEF, for example. Explicitly
check for the special indexes and ensure these symbols are not
marked undefined.

Fixes: ead165fa1042 ("objtool: Fix symbol creation")
