LLD has the -zbti-report=error argument to check if the BTI note is
present when linking. To allow for this to be used when linking the
kernel and modules:

  • Add the BTI note to the remaining assembly files
  • Mark ptrauth.c as protected by BTI
  • Disable -zbti-report for vmm hypervisor switching code as it's not used there.

The linux64 module doesn't build with the flag as it includes vdso code
that doesn't include the note.
