objtool: Only rewrite unconditional retpoline thunk calls

It turns out that the compilers generate conditional branches to the
retpoline thunks like:

  5d5:   0f 85 00 00 00 00       jne    5db <cpuidle_reflect+0x22>
	5d7: R_X86_64_PLT32     __x86_indirect_thunk_r11-0x4

while the rewrite can only handle JMP/CALL to the thunks. The result
is the alternative wrecking the code. Make sure to skip writing the
alternatives for conditional branches.
