Disable LTO for the BPF interpreter. This works around a gcc bug in the LTO
partitioner that partitions the jumptable used the BPF interpreter
into a different LTO unit. This in term causes assembler
errors because the jump table contains references to the
code labels in the original file.

gcc problem tracked in https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=50676
