Subject: [PATCH v4 17/17] x86/boot: Warn on orphan section placement

We don't want to depend on the linker's orphan section placement
heuristics as these can vary between linkers, and may change between
versions. All sections need to be explicitly named in the linker
script.

Add the common debugging sections. Discard the unused note, rel, plt,
dyn, and hash sections that are not needed in the compressed vmlinux.
Disable .eh_frame generation in the linker and enable orphan section
warnings.
