[gold commit] PR 17819: Fix --build-id=tree when using --compress-debug-sections

When --build-id=tree is selected, gold would schedule a set of
tasks to run to compute md5 hashes in parallel on chunks of the
file. The scheduling was done before the
Write_after_input_sections_task ran, so if we are compressing
debug sections, the output file will change size and be remapped
to a new address, sometimes causing the build id computation to
crash, but even when it doesn't crash, it wouldn't include the
debug information in the hash computation.

This patch delays the scheduling of the md5 tasks until after
