Lockdep checks that dynamic key registration is only performed on keys
that are not static objects. With KFENCE, it is possible that such a
dynamically allocated key is a KFENCE object which may, however, be
allocated from a static memory pool (if HAVE_ARCH_KFENCE_STATIC_POOL).

Therefore, ignore KFENCE-allocated objects in static_obj().
