lld: Set DF_1_PIE for -pie

Description

lld: Set DF_1_PIE for -pie

DF_1_PIE originated from Solaris[1].

GNU ld[2] sets the flag on non-Solaris platforms.

It can help distinguish PIE from ET_DYN.
eu-classify from elfutils uses this to recognize PIE[3].

glibc uses this flag to reject dlopen'ing a PIE[4]
