recordmcount: Fix handling of elf64 big-endian objects.
In ELF64, the sh_flags field is 64-bits wide. recordmcount was erroneously treating it as a 32-bit wide field. For little endian objects this works because the flags of interest (SHF_EXECINSTR) reside in the lower 32 bits of the word, and you get the same result with either a 32-bit or 64-bit read. Big endian objects on the other hand do not work at all with this error. The fix: Correctly treat sh_flags as 64-bits wide in elf64 objects. The symptom I observed was that my __start_mcount_loc..__stop_mcount_loc was empty even though ftrace function tracing was enabled.
