Ok, so gas now has an option to produce them that way.
That's pretty inane, but so it is.
How does the rest of binutils deal with this? Does it decompress .zfoo and
pretend it was called .foo and then apply a .rel.foo section's relocs to
it? (I guess the name of the reloc section doesn't actually matter, if
it's just following the sh_info pointer as it should.)
