Re: [ia64] objcopy and constant-gp
.section foo, "a", @progbits
this works. But it is rather an acceptable workaround.
I think that you might mean "unacceptable" here... :-)
Moreover, I need to use the same trick for different platforms and some
platforms' assemblers use '%' instead of '@' (but that's managable).
I think that adding a flag to objcopy that would allow one to set file
header flags will be a little bit better.
But very target specific if you want to use printable names for the flag bits.
Still it is a feature that might prove useful to other people, so if you want
to implement it then please go ahead.
