I'll address the relocate_section in a follow-on patch after this one
is approved.  Probably by ripping out the entire section, as Richard
did to another target recently.  It only affects the block at the top
that sets relocation == 0.

The interworking issues are substantial, but the existing code simply
can't produce interworking shared libraries so I don't want to address
the two problems at the same time.  I have a complete patch for that,
including v4t-compatible interworking PLT entries.  I want to make it
aware that ARM v5t does not need the interworking PLTs but that's the
only open issue I know of.
