I was afraid there was something like this. But then how did linking succeed
on Octeon/PIC? Checking....
Apparently ".option pic0" only turns off PIC and not CPIC (-mabicalls) so
linking against -mabicalls objects still works.
If you still find this fragile I can of course work out the pcrel-based
sequence. Otherwise I just add a comment explaining this.
