SubjectRe: [RFC] Consolidate vmlinux.lds.S files

The only real difference for the ia64 vmlinux.lds.S is that it
generates correct physical addressess, so that the boot loader doesn't
have to know anything about the virtual layout of the kernel.
Something that might be useful for other arches as well...
