Ok, then we will implement this in a separate patch.

Already fixed in kyukhin/gomp4-offload branch.

Renamed to .gnu.offload_images, I'll update the branch tomorrow after testing.

Renamed to .gnu.offload_{funcs,vars}.
Automatically provided symbols __start__*, __stop__* don't work with shared
libraries, since the symbols from exec override the respective symbols in dso.

All these symbols are declared/accessed in C, so I renamed them to __offload_*.

Unfortunately, this is still under development.  I hope to have a working patch
in a week.  Now, without it, lto-wrapped builds offload images for all offload
targets, specified during configure.
