Something completely different, when using the linux patch I posted on LKM,
where a new program header is created for this section, and is removed if i want
to get rid of the section .realmode completely because I want to generate the
old target, you can ask me the question:
address@hidden linux-2.6.20-gujin]$ objcopy -R .note -R .comment -R .realmode -S
vmlinux vmlinux.tmp
BFD: vmlinux: warning: Empty loadable segment detected, is this intentional ?

address@hidden linux-2.6.20-gujin]$
 My answer is that it is not needed to keep this empty loadable segment, you can
strip it.
 I do not care of the warning because that command is used "-O binary" by Linux
Makefile and does not produce the warning.
