Subject[PATCH] x86/entry: use STB_GLOBAL for register restoring thunk
Arnd found a randconfig that produces the warning:

arch/x86/entry/thunk_64.o: warning: objtool: missing symbol for insn at
offset 0x3e

when building with LLVM_IAS=1 (use Clang's integrated assembler). Josh

With the LLVM assembler stripping the .text section symbol, objtool
has no way to reference this code when it generates ORC unwinder
entries, because this code is outside of any ELF function.

This behavior was implemented as an optimization in LLVM 5 years ago,
but it's not the first time this has caused issues for objtool. A patch
has been authored against LLVM to revert the behavior, which may or may
not be accepted. Until then use a global symbol for the thunk that way
objtool can generate proper unwind info here with LLVM_IAS=1.
