Subject: [PATCH v5 17/22] objtool: Disable CFI warnings

The __cfi_ preambles contain a mov instruction that embeds the KCFI
type identifier in the following format:

  ; type preamble
  __cfi_function:
    mov <id>, %eax
  function:
    ...

While the preamble symbols are STT_FUNC and contain valid
instructions, they are never executed and always fall through. Skip
the warning for them.

.kcfi_traps sections point to CFI traps in text sections. Also skip
the warning about them referencing !ENDBR instructions.
