Subject[PATCH v5 00/36] Warn on orphan section placement

- rebase from -rc2 to -rc7 to avoid build failures on Clang vs binutils
- include Arvind's GOT fix-up series[3], since it touches many similar areas
- add PGO/AutoFDO section patch[4]
- split up x86 and arm changes into more digestable steps
- move several sections out of DISCARD and into zero-size asserts
- introduce COMMON_DISCARDS to improve ARM's linker scripts

A recent bug[1] was solved for builds linked with ld.lld, and tracking
it down took way longer than it needed to (a year). Ultimately, it
boiled down to differences between ld.bfd and ld.lld's handling of
orphan sections. Similar situation have continued to recur, and it's
clear the kernel build needs to be much more explicit about linker
sections. Similarly, the recent FGKASLR series brought up orphan section
handling too[2]. In all cases, it would have been nice if the linker was
running with --orphan-handling=warn so that surprise sections wouldn't
silently get mapped into the kernel image at locations up to the whim
of the linker's orphan handling logic. Instead, all desired sections
should be explicitly identified in the linker script (to be either kept,
discarded, or verified to be zero-sized) with any orphans throwing a
warning. The powerpc architecture has actually been doing this for some
time, so this series just extends that coverage to x86, arm, and arm64.

This has gotten sucecssful build testing under the following matrix:

compiler/linker: gcc+ld.bfd, clang+ld.lld
targets: defconfig, allmodconfig
architectures: x86, i386, arm64, arm
versions: v5.8-rc7, next-20200731 (with various build fixes[7][8])

Two known-failure exceptions (unchanged by this series) being:
- clang+arm/arm64 needs CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN=n to pass allmodconfig[5]
- clang+i386 only builds in -next, which was recently fixed[6]

All three architectures depend on the first several commits to x86 depends on Arvind's GOT series[3], so I collected it
into this version of my series, as it hadn't been taken into -tip yet.
arm64 depends on the efi/libstub patch. As such, I'd like to land this
series as a whole. Given that two thirds of it is in the arm universe,
perhaps this can land via the arm64 tree? If x86 -tip is preferred, that
works too. If I don't hear otherwise, I will just carry this myself in
-next. In all cases, I would really appreciate reviews/acks/etc. :)
