These sections are mostly being used for code using global pointer
optimization.  .lit8 is also being used for fp code when assembling li.d
macros.

For kernel code global pointer optimization is incompatible
with our current use of $gp as the current pointer; in userland gp
optimization is incompatible with PIC code.
