My work to load archives via libdl seems to indicate there has to a relocation
record because separate text and data requires each function is placed in a
separate section and loading the section means the linker allocate the address
which the compiler cannot guess. The reloc record must point to the symbol which
means we should be able to redirect it. Something to consider.
