I reviewed it, and Eric Weddington had a chance to review it, too, but
did not object.

Most AVR users extract the binary contents from the ELF file anyway
(using objcopy), so they won't care.  There are only two direct
consumers of the ELF file known by now.  One of them (Atmel Studio)
discovered the problem since they could not properly handle the
additional header that is placed there when moving the text section
away from its default address 0, and the other one (Opensource
AVRDUDE) has been verified to handle both cases well, without as well
as with the change applied.
