It is still necessary for tip of tree LLVM to work properly
(specifically clang and ld.lld) regardless of whether or not LTO is
used.

[4] also fixes it but I don't think it can be backported to stable so it
would still be nice to get it picked up so that it can be sent back
there. We have been carrying it in our CI for a decent amount of time...
