The issue is that you want a version of libelf that works with objtool
and the versions of binutils/gcc/clang that the kernel build supports.
If libelf was part of the binutils package this might be ok.
But it isn't and it may end up with people scrambling around to find
a working version to build a kernel (or out of tree module).
