This is binutils. You can never be positive that a patch won't break
something. But the handling of SHN_MIPS_DATA and SHN_MIPS_TEXT isn't
written in an SGI-specific way (just as the handling of the other
SHN_MIPS_* sections isn't written in an SGI-specific way). I couldn't see,
and still can't see, a reason why removing the assertions is wrong.
