Subject[patch V3 03/23] vmlinux.lds.h: Create section for protection against instrumentation
Some code pathes, especially the low level entry code, must be protected
against instrumentation for various reasons:

- Low level entry code can be a fragile beast, especially on x86.

- With NO_HZ_FULL RCU state needs to be established before using it.

Having a dedicated section for such code allows to validate with tooling
that no unsafe functions are invoked.

Add the .noinstr.text section and the noinstr attribute to mark
functions. noinstr implies notrace. Kprobes will gain a section check
later.

Provide also two sets of markers:

- instr_begin()/end()

This is used to mark code inside in a noinstr function which calls
into regular instrumentable text section as safe.

- noinstr_call_begin()/end()

Same as above but used to mark indirect calls which cannot be tracked by
tooling and need to be audited manually.
