Subject[PATCH v2 03/16] x86: remove always-defined CONFIG_AS_CFI
CONFIG_AS_CFI was introduced by commit e2414910f212 ("[PATCH] x86:
Detect CFI support in the assembler at runtime"), and extended by
commit f0f12d85af85 ("x86_64: Check for .cfi_rel_offset in CFI probe").

We raise the minimal supported binutils version from time to time.
The last bump was commit 1fb12b35e5ff ("kbuild: Raise the minimum
required binutils version to 2.21").

I confirmed the code in $(call as-instr,...) can be assembled by the
binutils 2.21 assembler and also by LLVM integrated assembler.

Remove CONFIG_AS_CFI, which is always defined.

If this series is applied,
I can hard-code the assembler code, and delete CFI_* macros entirely.
