Fair enough.

Ok, that's what the attached does.  Regtested on
x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, and confirmed that is also fixes the
async MI testsuite on x86 due to the gate page warning.

BTW, What is it that won't work with the look for .text first?

      /* Find lowest loadable section to be used as starting point for
         continguous sections. FIXME!! won't work without call to find

      lower_sect = bfd_get_section_by_name (objfile->obfd, ".text");
      if (lower_sect == NULL)
	bfd_map_over_sections (objfile->obfd, find_lowest_section,

Now you've lost me.  This is mapping absolute section addresses
to section offsets.  It doesn't seem symfile_map_offsets_to_segments
or objfile_relocate would give any help here?

I could see passing OFFSETS instead ADDRS in more cases where we
want to pass addresses/offsets for all sections so we wouldn't have
to rely on sections names for addr->offset mapping.   There's the
unfortunaty that xcoff_symfile_offsets ignores ADDRS, but I'm sure
something could be done about it.

(While I was looking at it, I've reorganized the code to use
objfile_relocate after reading the symbols, instead of setting
the section offsets before reading them, but it didn't
give any simplification, so I dropped it.)

What machinery do you mean exactly?
