I am not sure about this part of the patch.  Why should we allow
addresses to provided instead of symbol names ?  I know that it can be
done for the entry point, but I think that that was a bad idea as
well, so I would not like to see it propagated.

This part of the patch is OK and I have applied it.  I made one change
- I took the common bit of code from the creation of the three symbols
and moved it into a seperate function.
