[PATCHv2 0/3] ld: Orphan section placement tweaks

This patch series is mostly the same as the original series I sent.
I've addressed all of the points that Alan raised, so really I think
patches 2 & 3 are pre-approved.

The change is in patch 1.  In my "excitment" to make sure that the
documentation mentioned how orphan placement might create a new ouput
section, I made it sound like creating a new output section was the
_only_ option when placing an orphaned section, which isn't true at all.

This new version of patch 1 tries to make all of the options for
orphan placement clearer.

Feedback welcome.

  ld: better handling of lma region for orphan sections
  ld: Track changes to default region LMA even for empty sections
