Fangrui has pushed proper aarch64linuxb and elf64-bigaarch64 for ld.lld:

https://reviews.llvm.org/D96211
https://reviews.llvm.org/D96188

This patch is needed for OUTPUT_FORMAT in the vDSO to work properly:

https://reviews.llvm.org/D96214

Once these are all merged into LLVM 13, I will update this to be:

depends on !LD_IS_LLD || LLD_VERSION >= 130000

Cheers,
Nathan
