[syslinux] Discard .note.gnu.property section to fix build failure (patch)

currently syslinux fails to build from source in Debian as has been
reported in https://bugs.debian.org/906414 . The reported error is:

  mbr.bin: too big (452 > 440)

I've realized that this is because since a recent version, the linker
adds a new section (.note.gnu.property). Discarding this section fixes
the problem. I've attached a patch, please consider merging it.
