Glad to see ARCH_WANT_LD_ORPHAN_WARN catching on :)

I took this for a spin with clang with malta_kvm_guest_defconfig and I
only see one section unaccounted for:

$ make -skj"$(nproc)" ARCH=mips CROSS_COMPILE=mipsel-linux-gnu- LLVM=1 O=out/mips distclean malta_kvm_guest_defconfig all
...
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.got) is being placed in '.got'
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.got) is being placed in '.got'
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.got) is being placed in '.got'

Looks like most architectures place it in .got (ia64, nios2, powerpc)
or .text (arm64).

Cheers,
Nathan
