Subject[PATCH v4 11/17] arm64/build: Warn on orphan section placement
Date
We don't want to depend on the linker's orphan section placement
heuristics as these can vary between linkers, and may change between
versions. All sections need to be explicitly named in the linker
script.

Remove .eh_frame, since there are none left.

Add .plt, .data.rel.ro, .igot.*, and .iplt to discards as they are not
actually used. While .got.plt is also not used, it must be included
otherwise ld.bfd will fail to link with the error:

aarch64-linux-gnu-ld: discarded output section: `.got.plt'

However, as it'd be better to validate that it stays effectively empty,
add an assert, as suggested by Ard Biesheuvel.

Explicitly include debug sections when they're present.

Finally, enable orphan section warnings.
