For that I need to know that it works on all targets using elf32.em.
I know it works for ia32/ia64/sparc*/ppc/s390*, but that's about it.
The target I'm worried about is mips which has its own .rel.dyn handling
which likely conflicts with -z combreloc.
If anyone tests this, I'll be more than happy to submit a patch to enable
-z combreloc by default (I wrote about this already to this list way back
when submitting -z combreloc patches).
Alternatively -z combreloc could be enabled by default and mips backend
wuold need to turn it off.
