Re: Enable 0x10 alignment for aarch64 symbols as is done for x86_64

Another more direct question is:
Where are code fill sections inserted? At what point are this->table_
elements put into the Output_section::Input_section object that has
access via "this->input_sections()"

There are no relo's in my code, i am linking statically also btw.
