[skip ci] Temporarily disable split-sections on Windows.

This temporarily disabled split-sections again on Windows because
of the overhead in linking it introduces. Unfortunately because BFD
is so slow a testsuite run gets almost 2x slower. Simply linking
Hello World takes an unacceptable long time.

So for now, it'll be disabled as we look into different linkers such
as LLD.
