The __getauxval call happens from IFUNC resolvers and violates current
guidelines regarding what can be done from IFUNC resolvers. This is
another reason to get rid of the PLT reference.
My IFUNC resolver enhancements are not ready for 2.26, and I plan to
wait for DJ's dl-minimal malloc improvements to land, rather than
rolling my own memory allocator to back the IFUNC resolver queue.
