Both GOT and ABS will work. But to me GOT is better because it only
needs two instructions while ABS needs four.

The most troubling issue is how to support the old GCC. It seems we
have to check GCC version and use -Wa,-mla-local-with-pcrel for GCC 12
(while I still think GOT is better but we don't have -mla-local-with-
got, *and* it will cause make every local object address load cost 4
instructions), or we just say "it's impossible to use GCC 12 to build
Linux 6.0 for LoongArch".
