     Introducing a new 32-bit absolute reloc of course makes gas generate
     objects incompatible with the third party linker and other tools.

I should have been more specific.  My secondary goal is to have ld be
able to link objects created by the third party compiler + assembler.
I don't currently care about the third party linker being able to link 
objects created by gas.

However, so far as I've been able to assertain so far, these 32 bit
relocs are used only in the debug sections.  So if they break it's only
going to affect the ability to run a debugger on the final elf file.
