CL 201358 removes most of the flags incompatible with -fembed-bitcode on iOS. However, -Wl,no_pie is left for darwin/arm because without it, linking fails:

ld: warning: PIE disabled. Absolute addressing (perhaps -mdynamic-no-pic) not allowed in code signed PIE, but used in _runtime.rodata from /var/folders/qq/qxn86k813bn9fjxydm095rxw0000gp/T/workdir-host-darwin-amd64-zenly-ios/tmp/go-link-225285265/go.o. To fix this warning, don't compile with -mdynamic-no-pic or link with -Wl,-no_pie

This error surprised @cherrymui who

thought we have removed absolute addressing on darwin/arm. Maybe we only did this for normal symbols but we missed runtime.rodata (which is linker generated)? I could take a look. (but probably not so soon...)

@thanm also expressed interest in digging into this:

The "runtime.rodata" thing seems odd -- runtime.rodata is a linker generated symbol, but looking at the linker code it appears to just be a pseudo-symbol that incorporates all of the rodata for the program. I ran a couple of regular builds on Darwin/amd64 with -buildmode=pie and looked over the relocations in the Go object file, and I don't see anything suspicious (although I'm not sure if that says much).

(from the golang-dev thread)

The error above is a build time error so can readily be reproduced on macOS with the following change applied:
