[binutils-gdb] Revert "elf: Properly compute offsets of note descriptor and next note"


https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;h=4e25ac038efbe5293885cc75d8a3e08b23da7cc9

commit 4e25ac038efbe5293885cc75d8a3e08b23da7cc9
Author: Simon Marchi <simon.marchi@ericsson.com>

    Revert "elf: Properly compute offsets of note descriptor and next note"
    
    This reverts commit 650444eb540f9fd85e821567a3f943b4bc41b8be.
    
    With this patch, running the GDB test case gdb.base/auxv.exp is stuck in
    an infinite loop, consuming memory to the point that it renders the
    machine unusable. I am reverting it so we can take our time to
    investigate while not killing all the developers' machines.
