[gold commit] PR 14746: Fix internal error in gold when script uses section address in assignment

When processing assignment expressions in a linker script, gold processes
absolute assignments early, but when one of those assignments involves the
address of a section that has not yet been finalized, we get an internal
error in address. This patch fixes the problem by gracefully returning
from expression evaluation even if the address is not yet valid, and
deferring the assignment in such a case.
