ENTRY/ENDPROC have nothing to do with dwarf2. That is CFI_STARTPROC/ENDPROC.

But actually checking the default implementation in linkage.h already
implements size:

#ifndef END
#define END(name) \
  .size name, .-name

#ifndef ENDPROC
#define ENDPROC(name) \
  .type name, @function; \

Are you sure it doesn't work?  Your patch should be not needed. If it's
still wrong then just ENDPROCs() need to be added.
