Subject: [PATCH] arm64: link with -z norelro for LLD or aarch64-elf

With newer GNU binutils, linking with BFD produces warnings for vmlinux:
aarch64-linux-gnu-ld: warning: -z norelro ignored

BFD can produce this warning when the target emulation mode does not
support RELRO relocation types, and -z relro or -z norelro is passed.

Alan Modra clarifies:
  The default linker emulation for an aarch64-linux ld.bfd is
  -maarch64linux, the default for an aarch64-elf linker is
  -maarch64elf.  They are not equivalent.  If you choose -maarch64elf
  you get an emulation that doesn't support -z relro.

The ARCH=arm64 kernel prefers -maarch64elf, but may fall back to
-maarch64linux based on the toolchain configuration.

LLD will always create RELRO relocation types regardless of target
emulation.

To avoid the above warning when linking with BFD, pass -z norelro only
when linking with LLD or with -maarch64linux.
