To reproduce this problem, you may want to apply this patch series on
top of objtool/core branch of the tip tree, and compile on

There are a couple of C files that are generating these warnings. One
such file is: arch/powerpc/kvm/../../../virt/kvm/kvm_main.o which gives
*arch/powerpc/kvm/../../../virt/kvm/kvm_main.o: warning: objtool:
kvm_mmu_notifier_release+0x6c: unannotated intra-function call* warning.

With unreachable() in __WARN_FLAGS(), we get unannotated intra-function
call warnings, but without unreachable() like in patch 11/12 or with
just the builtin variant of unreachable (__builtin_unreachable())
instead of unreachable(), we do not get those warnings.
