Subject: [PATCH] arm64: errata: Add -mpc-relative-literal-loads to build flags

Commit 67dfa1751ce7 upstream.

GCC6 (and Linaro's 2015.12 snapshot of GCC5) has a new default that uses
adrp/ldr or adrp/add to address literal pools. When CONFIG_ARM64_ERRATUM_843419
is enabled, modules built with this toolchain fail to load:

  module libahci: unsupported RELA relocation: 275

This patch fixes the problem by passing '-mpc-relative-literal-loads'
to the compiler.

Fixes: df057cc7b4fa ("arm64: errata: add module build workaround for erratum #843419")
