Even for the user space code? Do you have a testcase to show what
should be the desired behavior? As I understand, the SHN_MIPS_SCOMMON
section only appears in the relocatable files. You won't see it in
executables nor DSOs. Are there any problems with SHN_MIPS_SCOMMON
in .o files? Can we always pass `-G 0' to the assemebler for Linux.
