Never mind, I think I figured it out (I added a new custom section, kinda like it was done
for ".module/XXX" sections in windows-tdep.c).
And for the executable base address, I used objfile_rebase() for relocation, similar to
how it was done solib-darwin.c.
My first simple tests looks good, now I will have to try with bigger executables, and multiple threads.
