Thanks for doing this, but going over the patch I can't seem to spot
where (generally section symbol relative) relocations are being
taken care of. Am I simply overlooking something? I ask because
that's the main problem for my use case, whereas symbols don't
really matter for the moment (I simply didn't have a need to create
any so far).

And then, for the ld test case source adjustments, how do these do
anything useful with no test case output adjustments being needed?
