I don't think current BFD ld has any need for this option, which was
invented before we implemented two passes over input files for LTO.
Nowadays, LTO recompiled objects are inserted after the first input
file claimed by the plugin, and archives plus as-needed shared libs
that were on the command line after that point, will be rescanned. So
--pass-through just causes needless extra scans. Unless I'm missing
something.. Does anyone have a different opinion?
* plugin.c (plugin_opt_plugin_arg): Drop --pass-through.
