Subject: vDSO parsing bug?


It looks like musl can't handle vDSO images with more than one PT_LOAD
segment.  Both glibc and the reference code in
Documentation/vDSO/parse_vdso.c can handle this.

It's not currently an issue, since I don't think that any
architectures provide such a vDSO, but they might want to in the

Also, using the name "" is sort of wrong on x86_64,
where the convention is "".  Wouldn't it be better to
just read the name out of the SONAME header?
