I'm using 20000906 version of the binutils. Do you mean that there are
no incorrect relocations in the final shared object? Hmm... One point
of this bug may be that it's exposed in the case of the relocateable
object which is generated form several objects by ld -r command. In such
case, we have a R_SH_DIR32 relocation which needs both addend and implicit
reloc value in memory.
Such relocations seems correct for SH. If so, there must be a problem
in linker itself. So I think that our ugly patch for elf32-sh.c (or
something else) is still needed.

I'd like to try it. Thanks!
