Ok, I spoke to Fangrui more offline, and probably misread his
response. From our chat:
```
Fangrui:
objcopy is only used for GNU as assembled object files
With integrated assembler, the object file streamer creates .o and
.dwo simultaneously
With GNU as, two objcopy commands are needed to extract .debug*.dwo to
.dwo files &&& another command to remove .debug*.dwo sections
```

I ran this series through a mix of LLVM=1 vs CC=clang, LLVM_IAS=1 vs
unset, CROSS_COMPILE vs not, without issue.
