On a side note, we may revive the parisc patch. Helge isn't entirely
happy with the other solution for parisc; it is quite invasive and
touches a total of 19 files if I counted correctly.

Ok, my suggestion to use the linker was not a "do it this way", it
really was just a "maybe alternate approach". So no objections if
absolute_pointer() ends up being the simpler solution.

Yes, it's a lot simpler and makes backporting patches later much easier.
I'll send a pull request with the updated parisc patch tomorrow.

Thanks,
Helge
