Subject: [PATCH 18/25] objtool: Handle function aliases

Function aliases result in different symbols for the same set of
instructions; track a canonical symbol so there is a unique point of
access.

This again prepares the way for function attributes. And in particular
the need for aliases comes from how KASAN uses them.
