These are against HPA's x86/extable branch in the tip repo.

Light testing indicates that it works for x86_64, and MIPS64.  x86_32
looks good, but I didn't try to boot the resulting kernel.  But really,
what could go wrong with something so simple?

  scripts/sortextable: Handle relative entries, and other cleanups.
  Revert "x86, extable: Disable presorted exception table for now"
