I know that this is used in rather slow paths. But it still might
make sense to have these section borders pre-computed and
stored in struct mod_arch_specific. I mean to do similar
thing that we do on powerpc.

Well, we could do this in a followup patch if parisc people
wanted it.

Otherwise the patch looks fine to me.
