Description

[Driver] Don't pass --dynamic-linker to ld on Solaris

I noticed that clang currently passes --dynamic-linker to ld. This has been the case
since Solaris 11 support was added initially back in 2012 by David Chisnall (r150580).
I couldn't find any patch submission, let alone a justification, for this, and it seems
completely useless: --dynamic-linker is a gld compatibility form of the option, the
native option being -I. First of all, however, the dynamic linker passed is simply the
default, so there's no reason at all to specify it in the first place.

This patch removes passing the option and adjusts the affected testcase accordingly.

Tested on x86_64-pc-solaris2.11 and sparcv9-sun-solaris2.11.
