When llvm-objcopy sorts sections during finalization, it only sorts based on the offset, which can cause the group section to come after the sections it contains. This causes link failures when using gold to link objects created by llvm-objcopy.

Fix this for now by copying GNU objcopy's behavior of placing SHT_GROUP sections first. In the future, we may want to remove this sorting entirely to more closely preserve the input file layout.

This fixes https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42052.
