I was curious if the "mix" of `.fixup` and `.text.fixup` in a few
places under arch/arm/ was intentional or not. I should have
investigated that more.

Before this patch:
$ ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- make CC=clang LD=ld.lld -j71
$ readelf -S arch/arm/lib/copy_from_user.o
...
[ 9] .fixup PROGBITS 00000000 0004e8 00001c 00
AX 0 0 4
...
$ readelf -S vmlinux
...
[ 2] .fixup PROGBITS c020826c 00126c 00001c 00 AX 0 0 4
[ 3] .text PROGBITS c0300000 002000 d71964 00 WAX
0 0 4096
....
(Which is bad since .fixup resides before _stext!)
$ readelf -s vmlinux | grep _stext
203324: c0300000 0 NOTYPE GLOBAL DEFAULT 3 _stext

After this patch is applied:
$ readelf -S arch/arm/lib/copy_from_user.o
...
[ 9] .text.fixup PROGBITS 00000000 0004e8 00001c 00 AX 0 0 4
...
$ readelf -S vmlinux
...
[ 2] .text PROGBITS c0300000 002000 d71964 00 WAX
0 0 4096
...
(So there's no orphaned .fixup section). I forget if I was just
discussing it w/ Ard or Arnd a few days ago but I think we should
really enable warning on orphan sections during link (lest we continue
to run into issues like this).

$ grep -r \\.fixup arch/arm

turns up another hit in:
arch/arm/boot/compressed/vmlinux.lds.S: *(.fixup)

Which I think should be fixed, too, maybe in a V2 so I'll hold my
reviewed-by tag for now. (Modifying that locally, I'm able to boot
qemu, and I also don't see any object files with such a section, ie.

$ readelf -S arch/arm/boot/compressed/*.o | grep fixup

comes up empty. So it could be renamed or even removed).

We should also cc stable, since c4a84ae39b4a5 first landed in v4.1-rc1.

Thanks for the patch!
