This series tries to sort the ORC unwind tables in vmlinux link phase at
build time, help to speed up kernel boot. It's significant for boot time
sensitive products, such as embedded device in IoT, or serverless in
cloud.

Thanks!

Changes from RFC v2:
- removed new added Kconfig and runtime sort code, advised by Josh Poimboeuf.
- some minor refactoring.

v1:
