objtool: Allow AR to be overridden with HOSTAR

Currently, this Makefile hardcodes GNU ar, meaning that if it is not
available, there is no way to supply a different one and the build will
fail.

$ make AR=llvm-ar CC=clang LD=ld.lld HOSTAR=llvm-ar HOSTCC=clang \
HOSTLD=ld.lld HOSTLDFLAGS=-fuse-ld=lld defconfig modules_prepare
...
AR /out/tools/objtool/libsubcmd.a
/bin/sh: 1: ar: not found
...

Follow the logic of HOST{CC,LD} and allow the user to specify a
different ar tool via HOSTAR (which is used elsewhere in other
tools/ Makefiles).
