This resulted in some new objtool warnings because the UD0 instruction
is a dead end in the .text.unlikely section, but it's not annotated as
such. (As opposed to the WARN macros' use of UD0, which aren't dead
ends since they resume execution immediately afterwards).

The below patch creates a UNREACHABLE_ASM macro, similar to the existing
unreachable() macro for C code, which you can call right after the
ASM_UD0 line above to fix the warnings. Feel free to add the patch to
your set.

Subject: [PATCH] objtool: create UNREACHABLE_ASM macro

Create an UNREACHABLE_ASM macro to enable inline asm to annotate dead
end code paths. This macro is analagous to the unreachable() macro for
C code.

Also add a couple of comments.
