Per this construct you should do as x86 does and assume twui terminates
control flow and explicitly annotate the WARN case. That is, given the
fact that BUG as no instructions following it, you can't very well
annotate that.

Alternatively, you can teach objtool to look at __bug_table to
distinguish these cases.
