[Linux-ia64] Buggy unwind tables in user space

Most IA64 distributions contain a bad version of crtn.o.  Executables
or shared libraries built with this file have invalid unwind data.

SuSe Linux 7.1a, TurboLinux 000828, TL 010307 (beta3) and Redhat 7.0.90
all have a buggy version of crtn.o.  Redhat 7.0.98 (Wolverine) has a
clean version of crtn.o, but if any Wolverine binaries were compiled
against the old crtn.o then they will be bad as well.

crtn.o relocation records are wrong.  Offsets 0 and 18 have no
relocation entries so they end up as zero.  Typical executable dump
