Ok, thanks, that helped.

Problem is:

7f4b5cde2409 ("kvm: Disable objtool frame pointer checking for vmenter.S")

it is disabling checking of the arch/x86/kvm/svm/vmenter.S by objtool
when CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER=y but that also leads to objtool *not*
generating .return_sites and the return thunk remains unpatched.

I think we need to say: ignore frame pointer checking but still generate

Josh, ideas?
