 Log Message:
 Update to 2.31.1
   This release also contains a fix for PR gold/23409 where the gold
   linker could end up creating duplicate copies of some symbols.
 This release contains numerous bug fixes, and also the
 following new features:
   * Direct linking with DLLs for Cygwin and Mingw targets is now faster.
   * The linker now defaults to enabling -z separate-code for Linux
     targets, although a configure time option can change this.
     This option can increase disk and memory size of executables, but
     it does help to improve security.
   * The disassembler supports Netronome Flow Processor (NFP) firmware
   * The AArch64 disassembler supports showing disassembly notes which
     are emitted when inconsistencies are found with the instruction that
     may result in the instruction being invalid.  It also emits warnings
     when a combination of an instruction and a named register could be
   * The AR archive manager now supports an "O" modifier to display
     member offsets inside an archive.
   * The ADR and ADRL pseudo-instructions supported by the ARM assembler
     now only set the bottom bit of the address of thumb function symbols
     if the -mthumb-interwork command line option is active.
   * The MIPS assembler supports the Global INValidate (GINV) and
     Cyclic Redudancy Check (CRC) architecture extensions.
   * Support has been added for the Freescale S12Z architecture.
   * The assembler has a new --generate-missing-build-notes=[yes|no]
     option to create (or not) GNU Build Attribute notes if none are
     present in the input sources.
   * The -mold-gcc command-line option has been removed for x86 targets.
   * The x86 assembler now supports a -O[2|s] command-line options to
     enable alternate shorter instruction encodings.
   * The gold linker has a new --debug=plugin option for easier debugging
     of plugin-related problems.
   * The gold linker now supports the -z keep_text_section_prefix option.
   * The gold linker now has support for sections
     (from Linux ABI extensions).
   * Add gold linker now has support for Intel's Indirect Branch Tracking
     (IBT) and Shadow Stack instructions.
