No, they won't be remapped when starting the unexec'd binary (that's
the issue, in fact, otherwise you wouldn't have a problem).  Just
dumping the memory areas containing the function descriptors and
making them part of the unexec'd binary _ought_ to work.

  Camm> Am I the only one with these problems on this platform?

It's the first time I heard of it.

  Camm> BTW, Debian hppa works fine.

Yes, that's not surprising.  HP-PA handles function descriptors
differently (mostly in worse ways; this is one area where the HP-PA
way of doing things happens to work out better).
