The patch below appears to fix it (the first chunk is the actual fix;
the second chunk is just cleanup). Could you test it out before I
commit? I have a similar failure on x86 native that I'll also use to
verify (but it's not easy to run that repro as it was to run yours!).

Basically, we were calculating the size of the relro segment by
temporarily assigning addresses and offsets to each relro section,
based on the current offset. Previously, we were always aligning the
current offset before each segment to a page boundary, but now we're
not, and the temporary assignment was based on what is now a
potentially-unaligned starting offset. Instead, I start the temporary
assignment at offset 0.
