Subject[PATCH] arm/build: Always handle .ARM.exidx and .ARM.extab sections
Date
After turning on warnings for orphan section placement, enabling
CONFIG_UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER instead of CONFIG_UNWINDER_ARM causes
thousands of warnings when clang + ld.lld are used:

$ scripts/config --file arch/arm/configs/multi_v7_defconfig \
-d CONFIG_UNWINDER_ARM \
-e CONFIG_UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER
$ make -skj"$(nproc)" ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- LLVM=1 defconfig zImage

ld.lld: warning: init/built-in.a(calibrate.o):(.ARM.extab) is being placed in '.ARM.extab'

These sections are handled by the ARM_UNWIND_SECTIONS define, which is
only added to the list of sections when CONFIG_ARM_UNWIND is set.
CONFIG_ARM_UNWIND is a hidden symbol that is only selected when
CONFIG_UNWINDER_ARM is set so CONFIG_UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER never
handles these sections. According to the help text of
CONFIG_UNWINDER_ARM, these sections should be discarded so that the
kernel image size is not affected.
