Well, there are basically two modes (actually three as I've just
discovered on the clang bug): warn and fail. I hadn't found a way to get
"small" warns, so I wired up the fail path which injects an
"unreachable" as part of its logic.

It'll still need the objtool change for CONFIG_UBSAN_TRAP, though based on
the clang bug discussion, I'll probably _also_ be adding CONFIG_UBSAN_WARN
which won't have an unreachable (and won't bloat the kernel). Testing
still under way... it is possible that CONFIG_UBSAN_TRAP will go away
in the future, though. If that happens, should I also remove the change
at that time?
