  Yeh, but we just couldn't find out how to get rid of the padding.  Don't
see why the linker needs to actually put it in there.

  I see the patch you've got turns the ELF_MAXPAGESIZE down to 4kb, which
implicitly affects the alignment of sections.  Using "ELF_MAXPAGESIZE mips"
as a search string at google I found a thread that suggested using the "-n"
(or "-N") switches to ld, which stops it doing page alignment; have you ever
tried that yourself?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
