bfd-in2.h has this:
/* When performing a partial link, some formats must modify the
relocations rather than the data - this flag signals this.*/
What is "inplace" refering to?
When I read the phrase "partial_inplace" it says to me "in the
section". However, when I read the comment it says "in the relocs".
Which is it???
The comment is confusing because it does not explain what the true and
false values mean; it only explains what the flag refers to. Complain
If partial_inplace is true, the addend is stored in the section. If
partial_inplace is false, the addend is stored in the reloc entry.
