* This supplies .note.* sections to go into the PT_NOTE inside the vDSO text.
* Here we can supply some information useful to userland.

doesn't work. Remember to change this when changing the

* Add a special note telling glibc's dynamic linker a fake hardware
* flavor that it will use to choose the search path for libraries in the
* same way it uses real hardware capabilities like "mmx".
* We supply "nosegneg" as the fake capability, to indicate that we
* do not like negative offsets in instructions using segment overrides,
* since we implement those inefficiently. This makes it possible to
* install libraries optimized to avoid those access patterns in someplace
* like /lib/i686/tls/nosegneg. Note that an /etc/
* corresponding to the bits here is needed to make ldconfig work right.
* It should contain:
* hwcap 1 nosegneg
* to match the mapping of bit to name that we give here.
* At runtime, the fake hardware feature will be considered to be present
* if its bit is set in the mask word. So, we start with the mask 0, and
* at boot time we set VDSO_NOTE_NONEGSEG_BIT if running under Xen.
