Subject: [RFC 13/16] arm64: kernel: Add exception on kuser32 to prevent stack analysis

kuser32 being used for compatibility, it contains a32 instructions
which are not recognised by objtool when trying to analyse arm64
object files. Thus, we add an exception to skip validation on this
particular file.
