objtool: Support CROSS_COMPILE
When building with CONFIG_STACK_VALIDATION on a ppc64le host with an x86 cross-compiler, Stephen Rothwell saw the following objtool build errors: DESCEND objtool CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/builtin-check.o CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/special.o CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/elf.o CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/objtool.o MKDIR /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/arch/x86/insn/ CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/libstring.o elf.c:22:23: fatal error: sys/types.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/exec-cmd.o CC /home/sfr/next/x86_64_allmodconfig/tools/objtool/help.o builtin-check.c:28:20: fatal error: string.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. objtool.c:28:19: fatal error: stdio.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. It fails to build because it tries to compile objtool with the cross-compiler instead of the host compiler. Ensure that it always uses the host compiler by ignoring CROSS_COMPILE. In order to do that properly, the libsubcmd.a library needs to be built in tools/objtool/ rather than tools/lib/subcmd/. The latter directory contains the cross-compiled version which is needed for perf and possibly other tools. Note that cross-compiling for x86 on a _big_ endian system would result in a bunch of false positive objtool warnings during the kernel build because it isn't endian-aware. But that's generally a rare edge case and there haven't been any reports of anybody needing that.
