Urgh, so sizeof() returns size_t which is confusing. But what is the
actual value of sizeof(unsigned long) for you? I suspect cross building
objtool doesn't work right at all. We build the kernel using LP64, and
its retpoline_safe section is 8 bytes. But if we build objtool as ILP32
then it would interpret things as 4 bytes.

Josh, is that supposed to work? I could of course move the retpoline
annotation over to 4 byte relative addressing which would fix this one
issue. Is that really the only case?
