lld: add experimental support for SHT_RELR sections.

Description

lld: add experimental support for SHT_RELR sections.

Patch by Rahul Chaudhry!

This change adds experimental support for SHT_RELR sections, proposed
here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/generic-abi/bX460iggiKg

Pass '--pack-dyn-relocs=relr' to enable generation of SHT_RELR section
and DT_RELR, DT_RELRSZ, and DT_RELRENT dynamic tags.

Definitions for the new ELF section type and dynamic array tags, as well
as the encoding used in the new section are all under discussion and are
subject to change. Use with caution!

Pass '--use-android-relr-tags' with '--pack-dyn-relocs=relr' to use
SHT_ANDROID_RELR section type instead of SHT_RELR, as well as
DT_ANDROID_RELR* dynamic tags instead of DT_RELR*. The generated
section contents are identical.

'--pack-dyn-relocs=android+relr --use-android-relr-tags' enables both
'--pack-dyn-relocs=android' and '--pack-dyn-relocs=relr': lld will
encode the relative relocations in a SHT_ANDROID_RELR section, and pack
the rest of the dynamic relocations in a SHT_ANDROID_REL(A) section.
