The clang-lto branch is rebased regularly on top of Linus' tree.
GitHub just looks at the commit date of the last commit in the tree,
which isn't all that informative.

I haven't looked at getting this to work on i386, which is why we only
select ARCH_SUPPORTS_LTO for x86_64. I would expect there to be a few
issues to address.

KERNEL_PAGES looks like a constant, so it's probably safe to ignore
the absolute relocation in tools/relocs.c.
