At -Os, ARC gcc generates millicode thunk for function prologue/epilogue,
which are served by libgcc.

Modules historically are NOT linked with libgcc to avoid code bloat, reducing
runtime relocation fixups etc. I even once tried doign that but got lost
in makefile intricacies.

However CONFIG_MODULE + CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE causes link errors

| MODPOST 5 modules
| ERROR: "__ld_r13_to_r18" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__ld_r13_to_r18_ret" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__st_r13_to_r18" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__ld_r13_to_r17_ret" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__st_r13_to_r17" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__ld_r13_to_r16_ret" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
| ERROR: "__st_r13_to_r16" [crypto/sha256_generic.ko] undefined!
|....
|....

Workaround that by inhibiting millicode thunks for loadable modules

Fixes STAR 9000641864:
("Linux built with optimizations for size emits errors for modules")
