Subject[PATCH 00/22] add support for Clang LTO
From
This patch series adds support for building x86_64 and arm64 kernels
with Clang's Link Time Optimization (LTO).

In addition to performance, the primary motivation for LTO is to allow
Clang's Control-Flow Integrity (CFI) to be used in the kernel. Google's
Pixel devices have shipped with LTO+CFI kernels since 2018.

Most of the patches are build system changes for handling LLVM bitcode,
which Clang produces with LTO instead of ELF object files, postponing
ELF processing until a later stage, and ensuring initcall ordering.

Note that first objtool patch in the series is already in linux-next,
but as it's needed with LTO, I'm including it also here to make testing
easier.

Sami Tolvanen (22):
objtool: use sh_info to find the base for .rela sections
