So looking at arch/x86/realmode/rm/realmode.lds.S: what's stopping
people from adding more sections before the first

. = ALIGN(PAGE_SIZE);

which, with enough bytes to go above the first 4K, would cause that
alignment to go to 0x2000 and then your hardcoded address would be
wrong, all of a sudden.
