kbuild: add CONFIG_VMLINUX_MAP expert option
It can be quite useful to have ld emit a link map file, in order to debug or verify that special sections end up where they are supposed to, and to see what LD_DEAD_CODE_DATA_ELIMINATION manages to get rid of. The only reason I'm not just adding this unconditionally is that the .map file can be rather large (several MB), and that's a waste of space when one isn't interested in these things. Also make it depend on CONFIG_EXPERT. Signed-off-by: Rasmus Villemoes <linux@rasmusvillemoes.dk> Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <masahiroy@kernel.org>
