Subject[PATCH v2 7/8] x86: check the size of GOT in vDSO
Date
There should be no real entries in the GOT, because they are basically
pointers to dynamic symbols, and that will not work correctly without
a real dynamic linker for the vDSO.

However, the ABI pre-defines three entries in the GOT which are always
present, so the GOT section is never completely empty. We can check
that there are no extra entries beyond these three.

To make it work:
- move the GOT into a separate section
- check the size of that section
- pass -m32 or -m64 to the pre-processor to get the correct
definition of __SIZEOF_POINTER__
