The problem with that patch is that it might break programs which depend upon
the current behaviour.

A better approach, I think, would be a patch which adds a new command line
option to disable section padding.  (Presumably on the assumption that the
linker will take care of aligning sections so that they start on a suitable
alignment boundary, padding the previous section if necessary).

Something like the uploaded patch ?  Would you care to try it out ?
