The offloading action builder requests the offloading toolchain have a linker, but amdgpu does not have a real linker (ISA level linker), so we have to emulate that. If we have an ISA level linker we can get rid of all these stuff, but I don't think that will happen in short time.

We can't link multiple objects, but we do need to link the single object with lld. The relocations even for functions in the same module are 0 until lld fixes them up. Do we have execution tests for function calls using HIP? Since it looks like lld isn't getting used here, I suspect they aren't working
