cmd/compile: remove -dolinkobj? #28220

cmd/compile has a flag -dolinkobj, which can be used to skip emitting linker objects. This was useful for things like running cmd/vet over the compiler's emitted package export data, without spending time in the compiler backend.

However, this functionality is not currently used within the base repo anymore. cmd/vet stopped using it in CL 37691 (8a93546), and the asmtests stopped using it in CL 107336 (26085fc).

Are there any remaining uses outside of tree? Is it worth keeping around for any reason?
