Subject: [PATCH v5 mips-next 0/9] MIPS: vmlinux.lds.S sections fixes & cleanup

This series hunts the problems discovered after manual enabling of
ARCH_WANT_LD_ORPHAN_WARN. Notably:
 - adds the missing PAGE_ALIGNED_DATA() section affecting VDSO
   placement (marked for stable);
 - stops blind catching of orphan text sections with .text.*
   directive;
 - properly stops .eh_frame section generation.

Compile and runtime tested on MIPS32R2 CPS board with no issues
using two different toolkits:
 - Binutils 2.35.1, GCC 10.2.1 (with Alpine patches);
 - LLVM stack: 11.0.0 and from latest Git snapshot.

Since v4 [3]:
 - new: drop redundant .text.cps-vec creation and blind inclusion
   of orphan text sections via .text.* directive in vmlinux.lds.S;
 - don't assert SIZEOF(.rel.dyn) as it's reported that it may be not
   empty on certain machines and compilers (Thomas);
 - align GOT table like it's done for ARM64;
 - new: catch UBSAN's "unnamed data" sections in generic definitions
   when building with LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION;
 - collect Reviewed-bys (Kees, Nathan).

Since v3 [2]:
 - fix the third patch as GNU stack emits .rel.dyn into VDSO for
   some reason if .cfi_sections is specified.

Since v2 [1]:
 - stop discarding .eh_frame and just prevent it from generating
   (Kees);
 - drop redundant sections assertions (Fangrui);
 - place GOT table in .text instead of asserting as it's not empty
   when building with LLVM (Nathan);
 - catch compound literals in generic definitions when building with
   LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION (Kees);
 - collect two Reviewed-bys (Kees).

Since v1 [0]:
 - catch .got entries too as LLD may produce it (Nathan);
 - check for unwanted sections to be zero-sized instead of
   discarding (Fangrui).
