alpha and s390x gratuitously use 64-bit entries (wasting 2x space and
cache utilization) despite the values always being 32-bit.
based on patch by Bobby Bingham, with changes suggested by Alexander
Monakov to use the public Elf_Symndx type from link.h (and make it
properly variable by arch) rather than adding new internal
infrastructure for handling the type.
If a DT_NEEDED entry was the prefix of a reserved library name
(up to the first dot) then it was incorrectly treated as a libc
e.g. libp.so dependency was not loaded as it matched libpthread
this was harmless as load_library is not called concurrently,
but it used one word of bss.
this change is made in preparation for adding the mips64 port, which
needs a 64-bit (and mips64-specific) form of the R_INFO macro, but
it's a better abstraction anyway.
based on part of the mips64 port patch by Mahesh Bodapati and Jaydeep
Patil of Imagination Technologies.
the dynamic linker was found to hang when used as the PT_INTERP, but
not when invoked as a command. the mechanism of this failure was not
determined, but the cause is clear:
commit 5552ce52000855906a5cb4f08f2e456573cca51f removed the SHARED
macro, but arch/sh/crt_arch.h is still using it to choose the right
form of the crt/ldso entry point code. moving the forced definition
from rcrt1.c to dlstart.c restores the old behavior. eventually the
logic should be changed to fully remove the SHARED macro or at least
rename it to something more reasonable.

commit d56460c939c94a6c547abe8238f442b8de10bfbd introduced this bug by
setting up the tls module chain incorrectly when the main app has tls.
the singly-linked list head pointer was setup correctly, but the tail
pointer was not, so the first attempt to append to the list (for a
shared library with tls) would treat the list as empty and effectively
removed the main app from the list. this left all tls module id
this bug did not appear in any released versions.
this eliminates the last need for the SHARED macro to control how
files in the src tree are compiled. the same code is used for both
libc.a and libc.so, with additional code for the dynamic linker (from
the new ldso tree) being added to libc.so but not libc.a. separate .o
and .lo object files still exist for the src tree, but the only
difference is that the .lo files are built as PIC.
in the future, if/when we add dlopen support for static-linked
programs, much of the code in dynlink.c may be moved back into the src
tree, but properly factored into separate source files. in that case,
the code in the ldso tree will be reduced to just the dynamic linker
entry point, self-relocation, and loading of libraries needed by the
