There seems to be a problem in the elf linker where a DT_TEXTREL is
not being created when a .rel.text is present. This is because the
.text segment is marked as writeable until the last minute when
config.text_read_only is checked.
I want to check for text relocations at load time, and a DT_TEXTREL
seems to be the cheapest method so far.
Any suggestions as to how best to resolve this bug, or a better method
for detecting relocs against readonly sections such as .text?
