Elfutils will analyse only sections with debug information in that

The simplest "solution" to that problem is to add R_IA64_SECREL32LSB
relocation to ia64_symbol.c:

diff -urpN elfutils-0.123/backends/ia64_symbol.c elfutils-0.123.mod/backends/ia64_symbol.c
--- elfutils-0.123/backends/ia64_symbol.c       2006-04-13 17:04:56.000000000 +0200
+++ elfutils-0.123.mod/backends/ia64_symbol.c   2006-09-15 12:07:51.000000000 +0200
@@ -114,6 +114,7 @@ ia64_reloc_simple_type (Ebl *ebl, int ty
        return ELF_T_WORD;
     case R_IA64_DIR32LSB:
+    case R_IA64_SECREL32LSB:
       if (ebl->data == ELFDATA2LSB)
        return ELF_T_WORD;

With that patch systemtap will be able to compile probes, but I do not
think they will work correctly (at least not allways). Eflutils probably
needs more powerful hooks for relocations.
