Avoid zero-length array at the end of struct link_map [BZ #25097]

l_audit ends up as an internal array with _rtld_global, and GCC 10
warns about this.

This commit does not change the layout of _rtld_global, so it is
suitable for backporting.  Future changes could allocate more of the
audit state dynamically and remove it from always-allocated data
structures, to optimize the common case of inactive auditing.

Just wanted to say thanks for taking care of this over the weekend.
Every one of my -gnu targets started failing yesterday/today because of
these issues.

Looks good to me.

OK. Move definition out of the link_map struct.

OK. Renamed, but effectively the same.

OK, for the normal layout of dl_rtld_map.

OK. We adjust the base pointer to point at the end of the link_map, then cast to an audit state structure. This is not an aliasing violation, the pointer is outside of the current structure. Once computed we take the array offset based on index and return that.

Simon,

I couldn't be happier about how nice the review looks here:
https://www.sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2019-11/msg00039.html

It captures all my points, and gets them to list so they aren't lost.
The leading and lagging context looks awesome.

Thank you very much for helping with this.
