4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <pet...@infradead.org>

commit ca41b97ed9124fd62323a162de5852f6e28f94b8 upstream.

David allowed retpolines in .init.text, except for modules, which will
trip up objtool retpoline validation, fix that.
