SubjectRe: [PATCH 07/22] kbuild: lto: merge module sections

For discarding .eh_frame, Kees is currently fighting with a series
that I would really like to see land that enables warnings on orphan
section placement. I don't see any new flags to inhibit .eh_frame
generation, or discard it in the linker script, so I'd expect it to be
treated as an orphan section and kept. Was that missed, or should
that be removed from the commit message?
