We have

  *again = FALSE;

  if ((sec->flags & SEC_RELOC) == 0
      || sec->reloc_count == 0
      || (!link_info->need_relax_finalize
          && sec->need_finalize_relax == 0))
    return TRUE;


        case R_IA64_LTOFF22X:
        case R_IA64_LDXMOV:
          /* We can't relax ldx/mov before the finalize pass since
             br relaxations will increase the code size. Defer it to
             the finalize pass.  */
          if (link_info->need_relax_finalize)
              sec->need_finalize_relax = 1;

  if (!link_info->need_relax_finalize)
    sec->need_finalize_relax = 0;

It seems to be that we won't have another relaxation pass after
the final relaxation pass.

I don't know if we can move R_IA64_LTOFF22X relaxations before the
final one.
