Subject[PATCH v4 16/17] x86/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.

Discards the unused rela, plt, and got sections that are not needed
in the final vmlinux, stop emitting kprobe sections without kprobes,
and enable orphan section warnings.
