We could do that only for the "objtool orc generate" command. That way
"objtool check" would still check the alternative, but "objtool orc generate"
will just use the first half of the alternative (like it does today with
ANNOTATE_NOSPEC_ALTERNATIVE). We can even keep all ANNOTATE_NOSPEC_ALTERNATIVE
but only use them for "objtool orc generate".
