The reason is that TARGET_VXWORKS_RTP isn't a compile time value to initiate
arm.opt. Instead it is true only when -mrtp is specified in runtime. Also
enable text relative may result in runtime error on vxworks, it is better to
prevent it here.

It is ignored if -fpic isn't given. I'm OK to remove the error here, while
Ramana preferred to error it.

How about
"Therefore, prevent addressing data with relocation types that doesn't apply
in such circumstance."
