Now that the Tilera port is in I thought I'd re-open this question:

  - We are using our own port of gcc 4.4.6 for the Tilera processor 
(it's a custom processor, so doesn't match anything else).
  - We are using binutils ld 2.21, not the Gold Linker.
  - We have deliberately created the entry that elflint is complaining 
about, pointing to ".got" rather than ".got.plt".  Our gcc guy has 
reasons for this (I can get the details) and he claims it's legal.  I 
don't have a trivial .so binary for you -- the smallest I'm building is 
about 60K.
