Adjust mcount name to match gcc

Currently, clang names the mcount function from -pg "_mcount" on PPC Linux and
"mcount" on any other Linux.

In gcc, this matches the behavior on PPC and x86 (both 32 and 64); but on
aarch64 the function is called "_mcount" and on arm32 it's called

This mismatch in naming causes the Linux kernel to miscompile for arm (32 and
64) if CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER is enabled.

The attached patch fixes this by matching the expected name of the mcount
