--- Comment #2 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
Interestingly enough I am considering a rework of the bin backend that would
make it possible (and it will have to be an option, in order to not break
existing tools) to generate absolute addresses in the list file.

That, by itself, would not be a sufficient reason to revamp the backend, but it
would also cut out a bunch of complexity.

The idea is to introduce a couple of additional interfaces: one to make it
possible to do the section layout after the stabilization pass rather than
after the code generation pass, and the other to be able to feed section
offsets to the listing generator backend. Both of these are easily done using
an RAA for each interface which would need to be generated anyway.

However, this is not 2.16 material.
