Kbuild provides LDFLAGS_MODULE to allows users to give additional
options for linking modules, but there is no way to append flags for
linking vmlinux.

It is true LDFLAGS_vmlinux specifies the linker options for vmlinux,
but it is only for internal-use.

We have CFLAGS_KERNEL, AFLAGS_KERNEL already, so LDFLAGS_KERNEL is
the same pattern.
