Description

Change -gz and -Wa,--compress-debug-sections to use gABI compression (SHF_COMPRESSED)

Since July 15, 2015 (binutils-gdb commit
19a7fe52ae3d0971e67a134bcb1648899e21ae1c, included in 2.26), gas
--compress-debug-sections=zlib (gcc -gz) means zlib-gabi:
SHF_COMPRESSED. Before that it meant zlib-gnu (.zdebug).

clang's -gz was introduced in rC306115 (Jun 2017) to indicate zlib-gnu. It
is 2019 now and it is not unreasonable to assume users of the new
feature to have new linkers (ld.bfd/gold >= 2.26, lld >= rLLD273661).

Change clang's default accordingly to improve standard conformance.
zlib-gnu becomes out of fashion and gets poorer toolchain support.
Its mangled names confuse tools and are more likely to cause problems.
