Subject: [PATCH] x86: Include thunk_$(BITS).o only if CONFIG_PREEMPTION=y

The newer GNU assembler may not generate a symbol table for the empty
object file.  Since objtool doesn't like empty object files without
symbol table and thunk_$(BITS).o doesn't have a symbol table when
CONFIG_PREEMPTION isn't enabled, include thunk_$(BITS).o only if
