s390/kernel: emit CFI data in .debug_frame and discard .eh_frame sections
Using perf probe and libdw on kernel modules failed to find CFI data for symbols. The CFI data is stored in the .eh_frame section. The elfutils libdw is not able to extract the CFI data correctly, because the .eh_frame section requires "non-simple" relocations for kernel modules. The suggestion is to avoid these "non-simple" relocations by emitting the CFI data in the .debug_frame section. Let gcc emit respective directives by specifying the -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables option. Using the .debug_frame section for CFI data, the .eh_frame section becomes unused and, thus, discard it for kernel and modules builds The vDSO requires the .eh_frame section and, hence, emit the CFI data in both, the .eh_frame and .debug_frame sections.
