I now got around to testing your patch, and ran into a few remaining
problems:

1. one configuration causing tons of warnings, on most compiler
versions (4.9 and newer), and even a couple of "unreachable
instruction warnings on gcc-4.3.

arch/x86/mm/pageattr.o: warning: objtool: set_memory_x()+0x3a: call
without frame pointer save/setup
security/keys/keyring.o: warning: objtool: keyring_read()+0x70: leave
instruction with modified stack frame
arch/x86/events/intel/pt.o: warning: objtool:
pt_event_addr_filters_sync uses BP as a scratch register

2. one configuration showing two warnings in a file that is compile
with "-O0", reproducible with gcc-4.9 and above (gcc-6 and above show
slightly different results from older versions):

crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool: jent_stuck()+0xbc: leave
instruction with modified stack frame
crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool:
jent_entropy_collector_free()+0x64: leave instruction with modified
stack frame

or

crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool: jent_fold_time()+0x3b: call
without frame pointer save/setup
crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool: jent_stuck()+0x1d: call
without frame pointer save/setup
crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool: jent_unbiased_bit()+0x15:
call without frame pointer save/setup
crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool: jent_read_entropy()+0x32:
call without frame pointer save/setup
crypto/jitterentropy.o: warning: objtool:
jent_entropy_collector_free()+0x19: call without frame pointer
save/setup

3. A few dozen "sibling call from callable instruction with modified
stack frame" warnings in one configuration using gcc-8, e.g.
drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/ev.o: warning: objtool:
c4iw_ev_dispatch()+0xff: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame
drivers/infiniband/ulp/srpt/ib_srpt.o: warning: objtool:
srpt_rdma_read_done.cold.40()+0xa3: sibling call from callable
instruction with modified stack frame
drivers/isdn/hardware/avm/b1.o: warning: objtool:
b1_parse_version()+0x234: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame
drivers/isdn/hardware/mISDN/mISDNisar.o: warning: objtool:
isar_fill_fifo()+0x17f: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame

4. a small number of other warnings in various configurations, also using gcc-8:

fs/btrfs/extent_io.o: warning: objtool: __clear_extent_bit() falls
through to next function endio_readpage_release_extent()
drivers/mtd/nand/nand_base.o: warning: objtool:
nand_scan_tail()+0x25f: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame
fs/fat/inode.o: warning: objtool: parse_options()+0x26c: unreachable instruction
drivers/media/tuners/tuner-simple.o: warning: objtool:
simple_set_params.cold.20()+0x0: unreachable instruction
drivers/media/tuners/tda8290.o: warning: objtool:
tda829x_attach.cold.18()+0x0: unreachable instruction
drivers/media/tuners/xc5000.o: warning: objtool:
xc5000_set_digital_params.cold.32()+0xe5: unreachable instruction
drivers/mtd/nand/nand_base.o: warning: objtool:
nand_scan_tail()+0x231: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame
fs/btrfs/extent_io.o: warning: objtool: __clear_extent_bit() falls
through to next function set_extent_bit()
drivers/edac/mce_amd.o: warning: objtool: f16h_mc2_mce()+0x32: sibling
call from callable instruction with modified stack frame
drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/cik.o: warning: objtool:
cik_init_microcode()+0x4d: sibling call from callable instruction with
modified stack frame
drivers/media/dvb-frontends/drxk_hard.o: warning: objtool:
set_qam.constprop.9()+0x778: sibling call from callable instruction
with modified stack frame
drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.o: warning: objtool:
mpt_HardResetHandler() falls through to next function
mpt_Soft_Hard_ResetHandler()
drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.o: warning: objtool:
mpt_Soft_Hard_ResetHandler() falls through to next function
mptbase_sas_persist_operation()
drivers/video/fbdev/tridentfb.o: warning: objtool:
trident_pci_probe.part.9()+0x1e1: sibling call from callable
instruction with modified stack frame
drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.o: warning: objtool:
mpt_Soft_Hard_ResetHandler() falls through to next function
mptbase_sas_persist_operation()
