Subject: [RFC 15/16] objtool: Introduce INSN_UNKNOWN type

On arm64 some object files contain data stored in the .text section.
This data is interpreted by objtool as instruction but can't be
identified as a valid one. In order to keep analysing those files we
introduce INSN_UNKNOWN type. The "unknown instruction" warning will thus
only be raised if such instructions are uncountered while validating an
execution branch.

This change doesn't impact the x86 decoding logic since 0 is still used
as a way to specify an unknown type, raising the "unknown instruction"
warning during the decoding phase still.
