[RFC v5 46/57] arm64: alternative: Mark .altinstr_replacement as containing executable instructions

From: Raphael Gault <raphael.gault at arm.com>

Until now, the section .altinstr_replacement wasn't marked as containing
executable instructions on arm64. This patch changes that so that it is
coherent with what is done on x86.
