SubjectELF - are .comment and .note sections needed? Inline syscalls?
I was experimenting to see how small I could make an executable, and found
that readelf showed .comment and .note sections in the code. It would
sometimes show others too. Are they used for any purpose? strip won't
remove them unless you specifically say --remove-section= for each one you
want to remove.

Also, is there any way to force the inlining of system calls? If I
include asm/unistd.h I can define a write() that will simply be the system
call, but gcc always wants to talk to libc. Is there a particular reason
that write isn't inlined by gcc, or have I stupidly overlooked something.
