Makefile: use during initial partial link

This commit makes no effect, but it prepares for the following one.
In general, using an intermediate platform-agnostic linker script
when making wrc.o is not bad, so let's do it here.

The main reason why we need it is to force the "KEEP" command for the
".cmd" ELF section, introduced by the next commit.  The alternative to
this would be chaning the main linker script, which is worse in my

If we add initcalls or similar stuff later, this is the
place to do it.
