Currently, around 100ms (on a Nexus S) of the plugin-container process startup is spent applying relocations that already have been applied by the main process. We want to avoid that when possible.
Mike - Any status update here? Anything blocking?
I need to file two intermediate bugs, to make our linker code understand elfhack sections and do relocations from them itself, and to modify elfhack to allow that. That's in my current scope of upcoming linker-related changes.
