Subject: [PATCH 1/4] x86/boot: Add .text.startup to setup.ld

gcc puts the main function into .text.startup when compiled with -Os (or
-O2). This results in arch/x86/boot/main.c having a .text.startup
section which is currently not included explicitly in the linker script
setup.ld in the same directory.

The BFD linker places this orphan section immediately after .text, so
this still works. However, LLD git, since [1], is choosing to place it
immediately after the .bstext section instead (this is the first code
section). This plays havoc with the section layout that setup.elf
requires to create the setup header, for eg on 64-bit:

    LD      arch/x86/boot/setup.elf
  ld.lld: error: section .text.startup file range overlaps with .header
  >>> .text.startup range is [0x200040, 0x2001FE]
  >>> .header range is [0x2001EF, 0x20026B]

  ld.lld: error: section .header file range overlaps with .bsdata
  >>> .header range is [0x2001EF, 0x20026B]

  >>> .text.startup range is [0x40, 0x1FE]
  >>> .header range is [0x1EF, 0x26B]

  ld.lld: error: section .header load address range overlaps with
  .bsdata
  >>> .header range is [0x1EF, 0x26B]
  >>> .bsdata range is [0x1FF, 0x398]

Explicitly pull .text.startup into the .text output section to avoid
this.
