Subject[PATCH 5/6] kbuild: Use single pass kallsyms
Date
kallsyms currenly links the kernel upto three times
(in addition to another one for modpost checks)

Linking can be a quite slow operation, especially when
the kernel has a lot of debug information (lots of IO),
or Link Time Optimization is used.

Final linking is also a non parallelizable bottlneck, so it's
always good to do it less.

Use a different kallsyms method to avoid this:
- generate a initial kallsyms table from the top level
object files
- This table is usually a super set of the final table,
but without final addresses and some extra symbols
(e.g. discard and local symbols)
- Use this table to link the vmlinux
- Then generate a new kallsyms table with padding so
that all symbols stay at the same offsets. This works
because the new table is smaller or the same than the
original one.
We let the first kallsyms generate a padding file and
then use it on the next link.
- Then finally patch in the new table into the vmlinux

The size difference between the two tables is typically
small, so the additional padding is not a problem
(a few hundred bytes in my kernels)

Right now we still do two links. One to generate
the kernel, and another one to generate the vmlinux.o
for modpost.

On my slowish laptop this cuts down the final serialized phase
of a moderate size kernel build (just relinking vmlinux) by 1/3,
from ~30s to 20s

Tested on x86, tests on other architectures would be appreciated.
