linker: handle R_ARM_COPY relocations in a proper way

If an executable contain copy relocations, other references
to the symbol it points to should be preempted and made to
point to the copy instead.

Also, the linker should make sure the target area has
sufficient space to contain the copy. It also checks
whether the library that supplies the symbol is built
with -Bsymbolic, and errors out if this is the case.
