When build libhugetlbfs tests with gold linker for i386, the below error occurs:

-Wl,--as-needed

But, it works well with GNU linker. --hugetlbfs-align flag passes
"-zcommon-page-size=$SLICE_SIZE -zmax-page-size=$SLICE_SIZE", that are supported by gold linker too.
But, it looks gold linker deal with them in a different way from gnu linker for i586.

The readelf shows the below result with GNU linker:

"--relax" linker option doesn't solve this problem.
Forced textsegment alignment to 0x08000000 with gold linker, the build will pass and
readelf shows the same result with GNU linker:

The fix just have impact on hugelink_rw test case, which needs --hugetlbfs-align flag.
