    Arnd reported some false positive warnings with GCC 7:

    When GCC 7 detects a potential divide-by-zero condition, it sometimes
    inserts a UD2 instruction for the case where the divisor is zero,
    instead of letting the hardware trap on the divide instruction.
    Objtool doesn't consider UD2 to be fatal unless it's annotated with
    unreachable().  So it considers the GCC-generated UD2 to be non-fatal,
    and it tries to follow the control flow past the UD2 and gets
    Previously, objtool *did* assume UD2 was always a dead end.  That
    changed with the following commit:
      d1091c7f ("objtool: Improve detection of BUG() and other dead ends")
    The motivation behind that change was that Peter was planning on using
    UD2 for __WARN(), which is *not* a dead end.  However, it turns out
    that some emulators rely on UD2 being fatal, so he ended up using
    'ud0' instead:
      9a93848f ("x86/debug: Implement __WARN() using UD0")
    For GCC 4.5+, it should be safe to go back to the previous assumption
    that UD2 is fatal, even when it's not annotated with unreachable().
    But for pre-4.5 versions of GCC, the unreachable() macro isn't
    supported, so such cases of UD2 need to be explicitly annotated as
