  objtool: Remove redundant 'len' field from struct section (2021-10-05 12:03:21 -0700)

- Remove an extra section.len member in favour of section.sh_size

- Align .altinstructions section creation with the kernel's by creating
them with entry size of 0

- Fix objtool to convert a reloc symbol to a section offset and not to
not warn about not knowing how
