Subject: RELRO vs deferred binding


my understanding is that deferred binding currently does not work if any of the
deferred relocations fall into the RELRO segment.

I am raising this because Alpine may try enabling -fno-plt globally, and
with -fno-plt non-PLT GOT relocations will be in RELRO, and affected Xorg
modules will fail to load, again, but now with a segfault in the dynamic
linker, presumably (I have not tested this).
