SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/4] build system: section garbage collection for vmlinux

The inlined patch should apply cleanly on top of the patch posted on
the link I mentioned before. The *.S files are the ones I chose to
bring them under the purview of --ffunction-sections. My observation
remains that if a fine-grained function/data/exported-symbol level
garbage collection can be incorporated into the build environment,
then it'll be something really useful.
