When building with debugging symbols, take the absolute path to the
vmlinux binary and add it to the special PE/COFF debug table entry.
This allows a debug EFI build to find the vmlinux binary, which is
very helpful in debugging, given that the offset where the Image is
first loaded by EFI is highly unpredictable.

On implementations of UEFI that choose to implement it, this
information is exposed via the EFI debug support table, which is a UEFI
configuration table that is accessible both by the firmware at boot time
and by the OS at runtime, and lists all PE/COFF images loaded by the
system.

The format of the NB10 Codeview entry is based on the definition used
by EDK2, which is not entirely unreasonable given that our implementation
of the PE/COFF header targets UEFI specifically, and is not for general
consumption of PE/COFF compatible systems.
