To you think it's possible to remove those relocations completely, so
that the whole C++ stuff is linked "without" any more open relocations?

After all, those are only "helper functions" that could be linked
"statically", or am I mistaken?

I don't have such deep knowledge of the C++ linking process, so I can't
answer that question myself.

The Generic Driver is not public available I think, but you could get it
here: (site with the
patches for alsa) (the
original generic driver code)
