x86/objtool: Use asm macros to work around GCC inlining bugs

As described in:

  77b0bf55

: ("kbuild/Makefile: Prepare for using macros in inline assembly code to work around asm() related GCC inlining bugs")

GCC's inlining heuristics are broken with common asm() patterns used in
kernel code, resulting in the effective disabling of inlining.

In the case of objtool the resulting borkage can be significant, since all the
annotations of objtool are discarded during linkage and never inlined,
yet GCC bogusly considers most functions affected by objtool annotations
as 'too large'.

The workaround is to set an assembly macro and call it from the inline
assembly block. As a result GCC considers the inline assembly block as
a single instruction. (Which it isn't, but that's the best we can get.)

This increases the kernel size slightly:

      text     data     bss      dec     hex filename
  18140829 10224724 2957312 31322865 1ddf2f1 ./vmlinux before
  18140970 10225412 2957312 31323694 1ddf62e ./vmlinux after (+829)

The number of static text symbols (i.e. non-inlined functions) is reduced:

  Before:  40321
  After:   40302 (-19)
