Currently there's no way to specify symbol orders. If someone wants to
reorder symbols in a special manner, one needs to use LLD as a library and
write a custom pass to enforce some specific ordering. That means they can
reorder symbols in their pass, rather than doing tricky things with layout
references and let the LayoutPass to sort them. The LayoutPass is
overdesigned and hard to use. Let's not depend on that too much.
