The shell archive below is a testcase demonstrating a bug in handling
R_MIPS_64 relocations in 32-bit ELF broken for relocateable links.
The output objectfile will contain bad relocations like:

0000000000000014 l       .text  0000000000000000 xxx

This seems to be caused by BFD temporarily adding 4 to the relocation's
address.  It seem the fix is to undo this when copying R_MIPS_64
relocations to the output file?
