Where we disagree is that this (the placement of LO16s) is a bug in the
first place.  Like I say, you only get the "out of place" (in your opinion)
LO16s with REL relocations generated from explicit reloc expressions.
That's already extension territory.

We obviously aren't going to reach agreement on this, so there's
probably little point me saying any more.
