Subject: [PATCH 12/15] arm64: add a workaround for GNU gold with ARM64_MODULE_PLTS

CONFIG_CLANG_LTO depends on GNU gold and due to a known bug, the
linker crashes when ARM64_MODULE_PLTS is enabled:

  https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=14592

To work around the problem, this change:

  1) Enables ARM64_MODULE_PLTS only when it's needed, i.e. when
     RANDOMIZE_MODULE_REGION_FULL is selected,

  2) and disables RANDOMIZE_MODULE_REGION_FULL with clang LTO.
