cmd/link: non-executable stack support for Solaris #16074

Today, the Go linker supports tagging executables as having a non-executable stack via a PT_GNU_STACK program header for internal linking.

The Solaris native mechanism for this is to create a PT_SUNWSTACK program header that is almost identical.

For the 1.8 release, I will contribute a set of trivial changes that offer the Solaris equivalent functionality that writes out a program header that looks like this (when viewed with Solaris elfdump):

Program Header[8]:
    p_vaddr:      0                   p_flags:    [ PF_W PF_R ]
    p_paddr:      0                   p_type:     [ PT_SUNWSTACK ]
    p_filesz:     0                   p_memsz:    0
    p_offset:     0                   p_align:    0
