kbuild: remove incremental linking option

This removes the old `ld -r` incremental link option, which has not
been selected by any architecture since June 2017.

Kbuild compiles all the $(obj-y) files. It then calls
"$(LD) -r" to merge these files into one built-in.o file.
built-in.o is later linked into vmlinux by the parent Makefile.
"$(AR) rcSTP" to merge these files into one built-in.o file.
This is a thin archive without a symbol table, which makes it
unsuitable as a linker input.
The scripts/link-vmlinux.sh script later makes an aggregate
built-in.o with "${AR} rcsTP", which creates the thin archive
with a symbol table and an index, making it a valid input for
the final vmlinux link passes.
The order of files in $(obj-y) is significant. Duplicates in
the lists are allowed: the first instance will be linked into
