Looks good.  Let's put this in as is while we figure out the fpscr issue.

It is not simply an optimization, it's calling handle_core_item
differently.  The 2008-08-01 log entry shows I added that special case
specifically for the case where handle_core_item gets the non-null last
argument and handles repeats itself.  I really don't recall the details
any more, but what I can surmise is that the one case that would use
this is "VMCOREINFO" notes.  Those appear in core files generated by
makedumpfile from /proc/vmcore data in the kdump stuff.  Can you try to
generate such a file that we can use to see what I was going for?  Show
how eu-readelf -n output for such a file is affected by any change you
