Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.9 14/15] elfcore: fix building with clang

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

[ Upstream commit 6e7b64b9dd6d96537d816ea07ec26b7dedd397b9 ]

kernel/elfcore.c only contains weak symbols, which triggers a bug with
clang in combination with recordmcount:

  Cannot find symbol for section 2: .text.
  kernel/elfcore.o: failed

Move the empty stubs into linux/elfcore.h as inline functions.  As only
two architectures use these, just use the architecture specific Kconfig
symbols to key off the declaration.
