[TEST] Add support for link time optimization

- Code generation is not done until after linking, so the
compiler must be invoked at all linking stages instead of the linker. As
a consequence all linker arguments must be prefixed with -Wl.
- Partial linking is not supported. Instead, object files are collected
into thin archives that are linked instead.

Using LTO leads to a ~10% decrease in stage size for QEMU and ~18% for
the Thinkpad T500, and both targets boot successfully.
