Subject: [PATCH v4 05/10] x86: Make sure _etext includes function sections

When using -ffunction-sections to place each function in
it's own text section so it can be randomized at load time, the
linker considers these .text.* sections "orphaned sections", and
will place them after the first similar section (.text). In order
to accurately represent the end of the text section and the
orphaned sections, _etext must be moved so that it is after both
.text and .text.* The text size must also be calculated to
include .text AND .text.*
