If you pass the --jobserver-fd=... flags but the fd's are not actually
open, the sub-'make -jN' prints warnings.  So, lto-wrapper should only
allow through the flags if it also passes the file descriptors (and of
course they are passed to lto-wrapper in the first place).

Another issue that is at least debatable is whether you want to pass on
flags like n (--dry-run, probably yes), k (--keep-going, not so sure),
t (--touch, not sure either).  There are more.
