I strongly disagree with this ordering requirement.
The whole world is not binutils, there are many tool sets that might
want to emit these ABI standard defined relocations. The most
important dependency is the dynamic linker, and it should support
all cpu ABI defined relocations regardless of whatever binutils can
emit it or not.
