-G0 is a no-op for now because there is no small bss/data optimization
implemented for LoongArch yet.

Using GCC 12 (w/o -mexplicit-relocs support) together with Binutils >=
2.39 (with explicit relocs support) will cause kernel modules fail to be
loaded (because there will be R_LARCH_ABS_* relocations in the modules
and the module loader does not support them), so we deliberately reject
such a combination at compile time.

I could add R_LARCH_ABS_* implementation into the module loader to make
it work, but Huacai suggested to just declare the combination of GCC 12
and Binutils >= 2.39 unsupported.
