Subject[PATCH 4.14 28/64] objtool: Improve retpoline alternative handling
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Josh Poimboeuf jpoimboe@redhat.com

commit a845c7cf4b4cb5e9e3b2823867892b27646f3a98

Currently objtool requires all retpolines to be:

a) patched in with alternatives; and

b) annotated with ANNOTATE_NOSPEC_ALTERNATIVE.

If you forget to do both of the above, objtool segfaults trying to
dereference a NULL 'insn->call_dest' pointer.

Avoid that situation and print a more helpful error message:

quirks.o: warning: objtool: efi_delete_dummy_variable()+0x99: unsupported intra-function call
quirks.o: warning: objtool: If this is a retpoline, please patch it in with alternatives and annotate it with ANNOTATE_NOSPEC_ALTERNATIVE.

Future improvements can be made to make objtool smarter with respect to
retpolines, but this is a good incremental improvement for now.
