On the llvm using .init_array seems more convenient

* It is what newer systems are normally using.
* Most developers are on systems with .init_array.

Case in point, I implemented this after being surprised to see a
.ctors on pr20793.

Another option would be to compute the default based on the triple and
share the logic with clang, but I am not sure where to put it.
