Actually, ET_DYN is not quite either.  It's more like a linked program
for the purpose of my question.

So, it's relocated already, but the relocations are still present.
No wonder GDB is doubling them.

This code was originally added for shared libraries (ET_DYN).  Those
generated by the GNU binutils at the time had relocations in shared
libraries that had _not_ been applied.

I don't see how we can sensibly distinguish the two cases.  What
toolchain produced this file?
