Uh, those are/were supposed to be set 'only' for actual executables,
i.e. not necessarily set in .o's and shared libs (though doing them it
shared libs could make sense).

For executables, they're taken care of by crt0, and for shared libs
they could be taken care of via the shared lib 'start file'.

I don't think you should need to make any changes to gcc or the
binutils to deal with the ELF .notes sections.
