Don't worry too much about the howto functions; they are used by the
assembler and when linking to a different object file format.  You
really want to write a relocate_section function, and those take a
whole set of relocations.  See alpha_relocate_section() in
coff-alpha.c for an example of such a function in which relocations
build upon each other.
