init/gcov: allow CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS on UML to fix module gcov
On ARCH=um, loading a module doesn't result in its constructors getting called, which breaks module gcov since the debugfs files are never registered. On the other hand, in-kernel constructors have already been called by the dynamic linker, so we can't call them again. Get out of this conundrum by allowing CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS to be selected, but avoiding the in-kernel constructor calls. Also remove the "if !UML" from GCOV selecting CONSTRUCTORS now, since we really do want CONSTRUCTORS, just not kernel binary ones.
