lkdtm: mark execute_location as noinline
The kernel sometimes fails to link when lkdrm is built-in and compiled with clang: relocation truncated to fit: R_ARM_THM_CALL against `.bss' The reason here is that a relocation from .text to .bss fails to generate a trampoline because .bss is not an executable section. Marking the function 'noinline' turns the relative branch to .bss into an absolute branch to the function argument, and that works fine.
