Basically because the DWARF frame info is currently in the .debug_frame
section and I assumed that if no .eh_frame section was generated during
the partial link of the kernel source, I can move the .debug_frame input
section into a .eh_frame output section and it still wouldn't be

Is there a way to force all DWARF debug frame info to be output into a
.eh_frame section?
