HJ, you no doubt saw my attempt at trying to interpret the ELF spec to
rationalize GNU ld generation of SHN_ABS symbols.  Cary demolished my argument.
 So for one, my claim that there might be a bug in the kernel loaders in their
treatment of SHN_ABS symbols is rubbish.  Also, it means that the pr13621 patch
should be completely reverted, because that patch made GNU ld create SHN_ABS
symbols from non-SHN_ABS input symbols.  Your patch prevents some specific
cases of wrong SHN_ABS symbols, but we should be getting rid of all of them.
