I did not get above warning.. objtool compiled for me properly

but we have some issues with perf there, I have to use
following to get it compile, plus attached patch

make EXTRA_CFLAGS="-Wno-format-truncation -Wno-cast-function-type"

the format-truncation are mostly fine, because we use the
buffer len to be safe and the worst things that will happen
is that we won't open the file, because the path is too long

the cast-function-type seems like a problem, I've bunch
of following errors:

/root/linux/tools/perf/util/python.c:830:15: warning: cast between incompatible function types from ‘PyObject * (*)(struct pyrf_evsel *, PyObject *, PyObject *)’ {aka ‘struct _object * (*)(struct pyrf_evsel *, struct _object *, struct _object *)’} to ‘PyObject * (*)(PyObject *, PyObject *)’ {aka ‘struct _object * (*)(struct _object *, struct _object *)’} [-Wcast-function-type]
.ml_meth = (PyCFunction)pyrf_evsel__open,
^

.ml_meth = (PyCFunction)pyrf_evlist__mmap,

.ml_meth = (PyCFunction)pyrf_evlist__open,

we might want to look at it.. there were some python related
changes recently, like v3 support.. Arnaldo?

thanks,
jirka
