cmd/link: implement external linking support for ppc64/linux #8912
We need to fix the 9l linker to provide external linking support, so that -linkmode=external works on power64. This code is currently on the dev.power64 branch and should come into tip after the 1.4 release is out. This means writing elfreloc1, elfsetupplt, adddynsym, adddynrela, etc., in cmd/9l/asm.c and doing whatever else is necessary so that (cd misc/cgo/test && go test -linkmode=external) passes for both big- and little- endian power64.
