objtool: Support stack layout changes in alternatives

The ORC unwinder showed a warning [1] which revealed the stack layout
didn't match what was expected.  The problem was that paravirt patching
had replaced "CALL *pv_ops.irq.save_fl" with "PUSHF;POP".  That changed
the stack layout between the PUSHF and the POP, so unwinding from an
interrupt which occurred between those two instructions would fail.

Part of the agreed upon solution was to rework the custom paravirt
patching code to use alternatives instead, since objtool already knows
how to read alternatives (and converging runtime patching infrastructure
is always a good thing anyway).  But the main problem still remains,
which is that runtime patching can change the stack layout.

Making stack layout changes in alternatives was disallowed with commit
7117f16bf460 ("objtool: Fix ORC vs alternatives"), but now that paravirt
is going to be doing it, it needs to be supported.

One way to do so would be to modify the ORC table when the code gets
patched.  But ORC is simple -- a good thing! -- and it's best to leave
it alone.

Instead, support stack layout changes by "flattening" all possible stack
states (CFI) from parallel alternative code streams into a single set of
linear states.  The only necessary limitation is that CFI conflicts are
disallowed at all possible instruction boundaries.

For example, this scenario is allowed:

          Alt1                    Alt2                    Alt3

   0x00   CALL *pv_ops.save_fl    CALL xen_save_fl        PUSHF
   0x01                                                   POP %RAX
   0x02                                                   NOP
   ...
   0x05                           NOP
   ...
   0x07   <insn>

The unwind information for offset-0x00 is identical for all 3
alternatives.  Similarly offset-0x05 and higher also are identical (and
the same as 0x00).  However offset-0x01 has deviating CFI, but that is
only relevant for Alt3, neither of the other alternative instruction
streams will ever hit that offset.

This scenario is NOT allowed:

          Alt1                    Alt2

   0x00   CALL *pv_ops.save_fl    PUSHF
   0x01                           NOP6
   ...
   0x07   NOP                     POP %RAX

The problem here is that offset-0x7, which is an instruction boundary in
both possible instruction patch streams, has two conflicting stack
layouts.

[ The above examples were stolen from Peter Zijlstra. ]

The new flattened CFI array is used both for the detection of conflicts
(like the second example above) and the generation of linear ORC
entries.

BTW, another benefit of these changes is that, thanks to some related
cleanups (new fake nops and alt_group struct) objtool can finally be rid
of fake jumps, which were a constant source of headaches.

-    This means that an alternative includes instructions that modify the

-    that the ORC unwind entries must be valid for each of the alternatives.
