Description

[ELF] Pre-create ThunkSections at Target specific intervals

When an OutputSection is larger than the branch range for a Target we
need to place thunks such that they are always in range of their caller,
and sufficiently spaced to maximise the number of callers that can use
the thunk. We use the simple heuristic of placing the
ThunkSection at intervals corresponding to a target specific branch range.
If the OutputSection is small we put the thunks at the end of the executable
sections.
