x86/build/lto: Fix truncated .bss with -fdata-sections

With CONFIG_LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION=y, we compile the kernel with
-fdata-sections, which also splits the .bss section.

The new section, with a new .bss.* name, which pattern gets missed by the
main x86 linker script which only expects the '.bss' name. This results
in the discarding of the second part and a too small, truncated .bss
section and an unhappy, non-working kernel.

Use the common BSS_MAIN macro in the linker script to properly capture
and merge all the generated BSS sections.
