Currently only .note.gnu.property section follows the gABI. Since they
are placed in a separate note section/segment which contains only
one such note, it shouldn't be an issue since you don't need to use
alignment to check the next note. I believe these tools should be
updated to follow gABI without breaking backward compatibility
like what we did in binutils and glibc.
