Yes, I did say the *existing* code seems sub-optimal, too :-)

.data.rel.ro is just another kind of .rodata, one that *can* be
relocated.  So when we use it, fPIC or not doesn't matter.  Also, we can
just use the existing rodata functions for generating .data.rel.ro, and
it should simplify all code even.

Should this take the 2-bit int "reloc" field like other functions,
instead of this bool?
