Subject[PATCH 1/2] objtool: Fix seg fault in ignore_unreachable_insn()
Date
Peter Zijlstra's patch for converting WARN() to use UD2 triggered a
bunch of false "unreachable instruction" warnings, which then triggered
a seg fault in ignore_unreachable_insn().

The seg fault happened when it tried to dereference a NULL 'insn->func'
pointer. Thanks to static_cpu_has(), some functions can jump to a
non-function area in the .altinstr_aux section. That breaks
ignore_unreachable_insn()'s assumption that it's always inside the
original function.

Make sure ignore_unreachable_insn() only follows jumps within the
current function.
