[PATCH] x86emul: avoid assembler warning about .type not taking effect in test harness

gcc 9.3 started to re-order top level blocks by default when optimizing.
This re-ordering results in all our .type directives to get emitted to
the assembly file first, followed by gcc's. The assembler warns about
attempts to change the type of a symbol when it was already set (and
when there's no intervening setting to "notype").
