[ELF] Implement infrastructure for thunk code creation
Some targets might require creation of thunks. For example, MIPS targets
require stubs to call PIC code from non-PIC one. The patch implements
infrastructure for thunk code creation and provides support for MIPS
LA25 stubs. Any MIPS PIC code function is invoked with its address
in register $t9. So if we have a branch instruction from non-PIC code
to the PIC one we cannot make the jump directly and need to create a small
stub to save the target function address.

- In relocation scanning phase we ask target about thunk creation necessity
by calling TagetInfo::needsThunk method. The InputSection class
maintains list of Symbols requires thunk creation.
- Reassigning offsets performed for each input sections after relocation
scanning complete because position of each section might change due
- The patch introduces new dedicated value for DefinedSynthetic symbols
DefinedSynthetic::SectionEnd. Synthetic symbol with that value always
points to the end of the corresponding output section. That allows to
escape updating synthetic symbols if output sections sizes changes after
relocation scanning due thunk creation.
- In the InputSection::writeTo method we write thunks after corresponding
input section. Each thunk is written by calling TargetInfo::writeThunk method.
- The patch supports the only type of thunk code for each target. For now,
it is enough.
