SubjectRe: [PATCH 07/29] x86: Restore "text" Program Header with dummy section

This is very laconic and after some staring at ld.info, I think you mean
this:

" If you place a section in one or more segments using ':PHDR', then
the linker will place all subsequent allocatable sections which do not
specify ':PHDR' in the same segments."

but I could be way off. Yes, no?

IOW, please write in the commit messages first what the problem is
you're addressing.

This is killing the filler byte but I have a suspicion that'll change
eventually to INT3... :)
