Re: PATCH: PR gold/13507: Gold assumes GOT entry size is the same as ELF class size

This patch adds an abstract base class so that do_process_got_plt()
doesn't need to know the size of the GOT entries. OK to commit?

	* gold/ (Sized_incremental_binary::do_process_got_plt):
	Use abstract base class for GOT.

	do_reserve_slot; Adjust callers.
	* gold/target.h (Sized_target::init_got_plt_for_update): Return
	pointer to abstract base class.
