Hi all,

The assumption that R_AARCH64_ABS16 and R_AARCH64_ABS32 relocation in LP64 abi
will be used to generate an address does not hold for absolute symbol.
In this case, it is a value fixed at static linking time.

The condition to check the relocations is relax to allow absolute symbol and
undefined symbol case.

aarch64 binutils cross/native regression test Okay. Linux kernel link Okay.

Okay to commit and backport to 2.30 branch?
