objtool: Fix elf_create_undef_symbol() endianness

Currently x86 cross-compilation fails on big endian system with:

  x86_64-cross-ld: init/main.o: invalid string offset 488112128 >= 6229 for section `.strtab'

Mark new ELF data in elf_create_undef_symbol() as symbol, so that libelf
does endianness handling correctly.
