ld.lld: warning:
arch/x86/video/built-in.a(fbdev.o):(.rela.orc_unwind_ip) is being placed
in '.rela.orc_unwind_ip'
ld.lld: warning: .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms2.o:(.rela.rodata) is being placed
in '.rela.rodata'
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.bss.rel.ro) is being placed in
'.bss.rel.ro'
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.eh_frame) is being placed in '.eh_frame'
ld.lld: warning: <internal>:(.symtab_shndx) is being placed in
'.symtab_shndx'
