alpha: link failure fix
With built-in scsi disk driver, the final link fails with a following error: `.exit.text' referenced in section `.rodata' of drivers/built-in.o: defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of drivers/built-in.o This happens with -Os (CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=y) with all gcc-4 versions, and also with -O2 and gcc-4.3. The problem is in sd.c:sd_major() being inlined into __exit function exit_sd(), and the compiler generating a jump table in .rodata section for the 'switch' statement in sd_major(). So we have references to discarded section. Fixed with a big hammer in the form of -fno-jump-tables. Note that jump tables vs. discarded sections is a generic problem, other architectures are just lucky not to suffer from it. But with a slightly more complex switch/case statement it can be reproduced on x86 as well. So maybe at some point we should consider -fno-jump-tables as a generic compile option...
