# HEAD: f36e7495dd3990d6848e6d6703c78f1f17a97538 x86/tools/relocs: Fix big section header tables

Misc updates:

- Add link flag quirk to solve LLVM linker bug that removes local
relocations, causing KASLR boot failures.

- Update the defconfigs to remove archaic partition table support

- Fix kernel growing pains: we had a bug in relocs.c handling section
header table entries count larger than 0xff00 (~65k), which can happen
with the -ffunction-sections flag, causing a build failure with a
cryptic error message. Add support for detecting the limit and using
the ELF protocol that extends the sections table via ->sh_size. The
new limit is now much larger - over a billion entries?
