Subject[PATCH 1/2] kbuild: remove top-level built-in.a
Date
The symbol table in the final archive is unneeded because it is passed
to the linker after the --whole-archive option. Every object file in
the archive is included in the link anyway.

Pass thin archives from subdirectories directly to the linker, and
remove the final archiving step.
