Subject: Re: ppc soft-float regression

Something seems to be wrong with the powerpc copy relocations.

Attached is a binary for testing (qemu-ppc works fine). It is compiled

#include <stdio.h>

extern char **environ;

int main(int argc, char **argv)
	printf("%p %p\n", environ, &argv[argc + 1]);
	return 0;

Output before dynamic linker overhaul:

0xf6f4f830 0xf6f4f830

and after:

0 0xf6f4f830

It seems to me that the dynamic linker indeed copies environ, which is
0 at that point, but that __init_libc uses the old location of environ.
