This emits a new file, .tmp_vmlinux.ranges, which maps address
range/size pairs in vmlinux to the object files which make them up,
e.g., in part:

0x0000000000000000 0x30 arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.o
0x0000000000001000 0x1000 arch/x86/events/intel/ds.o
0x0000000000002000 0x4000 arch/x86/kernel/irq_64.o
0x0000000000006000 0x5000 arch/x86/kernel/process.o
0x000000000000b000 0x1000 arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.o
0x000000000000c000 0x5000 arch/x86/mm/cpu_entry_area.o
0x0000000000011000 0x10 arch/x86/kernel/espfix_64.o
0x0000000000011010 0x2 arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.o
[...]

In my simple tests this seems to work with clang too, but if I'm not
sure how stable the format of clang's linker mapfiles is: if it turns
out not to work in some versions, the mapfile-massaging awk script added
here might need some adjustment.
