Subject: [PATCH] arm64: vmlinux.lds.S: keep .entry.tramp.text section

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

When building with CONFIG_LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION,
I sometimes see an assertion

 ld.lld: error: Entry trampoline text too big

This happens when any reference to the trampoline is discarded at link
time. Marking the section as KEEP() avoids the assertion, but I have
not figured out whether this is the correct solution for the underlying
problem.
