The LLVM linker (ld.lld) defaults to removing local relocations, which
causes KASLR boot failures. ld.bfd and already handle this
correctly. This adds the explicit instruction "--discard-none" during
the link phase. There is no change in output for ld.bfd and,
but ld.lld now produces an image with all the needed relocations.
