When scsi_dispatch_cmd was moved to scsi_lib.c and made static, some
compilers (i.e., at least gcc 8.4.0) decided to compile this
inline. This is a problem for the lkdtm.ko, which needs to insert a
kprobe on this function for the SCSI_DISPATCH_CMD crashpoint.

Mark the function as noinline so as to guarantee the symbol can be found
by register_kprobe.
