It just hit me.
It's the offset calculation in reloc_location() which overflows:
return (void *)elf->hdr + sechdrs[section].sh_offset +
(r->r_offset - sechdrs[section].sh_addr);

E.g. for the first rodata r entry:
r->r_offset < sechdrs[section].sh_addr
and the expression in the parenthesis produces 0xFFFFFFE0 or something
equally wise.
Does the attached patch fix it?
