Subject: lkdtm: disable KASAN for rodata.o

Building lkdtm with KASAN and Clang 11 or later results in the following
error when attempting to load the module:

  kernel tried to execute NX-protected page - exploit attempt? (uid: 0)
  BUG: unable to handle page fault for address: ffffffffc019cd70
  #PF: supervisor instruction fetch in kernel mode
  #PF: error_code(0x0011) - permissions violation
  RIP: 0010:asan.module_ctor+0x0/0xffffffffffffa290 [lkdtm]
  Call Trace:

The reason is that rodata.o generates a dummy function that lives in
.rodata to validate that .rodata can't be executed; however, Clang 11 adds
KASAN globals support by generating module constructors to initialize
globals redzones.  When Clang 11 adds a module constructor to rodata.o, it
is also added to .rodata: any attempt to call it on initialization results
in the above error.

Therefore, disable KASAN instrumentation for rodata.o.
