You fail to address my pointing out of this not being compliant to gABI. I also
don't buy the argument that the dynamic loader needs the note sections mapped
into memory. It can very well simply read them from the file. (I can see that
it's _easier_ if they get mapped, but that's not an excuse to violate gABI,
which I assume has good reasons to state what it states.)

This doesn't address my question as to making oneself immune to future such
binutils changes.
