Long time ago I looked at eliminating the use of -r in the kernel build.
I lost the patch - but the attached patch managed to build
a "make defconfig; make" kernel.

I have not event tried boot with this - it only managed to build!

What the patch does is for each directory visited a built-in.link file is created
which is really a linker script.
It uses INPUT (file file file) to specify all the object files.
And in the final link the files are all read and the link is performed.

This limit the depth to 10 levels due to a restriction in ld.
The binutils people have suggested some other methods that I did not look into.

Half of the patch is fixes to the security makefiles which I
will submit anyway as this needs to be cleaned up indendent on
this patch.

The patch drops $(cmd_secanalysis) because I did not look into this.

If this could make it easier to enable LTO then this would be
a nice win.
