* i386linux.c (linux_add_one_symbol): Don't do anything Linux
specific if this is not a Linux hash table. From Eric Youngdale
Patches from (Kazumoto Kojima):
* mipsbsd.c (mips_howto_table_ext): Change sizes of memory relocs
apply to from two bytes to four bytes.
* MY(reloc_howto_type_lookup): Handle BFD_RELOC_CTOR.
* elf32-i386.c (elf_i386_relocate_section): Correct and expand the
list of cases for which relocation need not be computed.
* elf32-sparc.c (elf32_sparc_relocate_section): Likewise.

* elf32-hppa.c (elf32_hppa_read_symext_info): Delete do_locals and
do_globals arguments, always read symbol extension information for
globals and locals. All callers changed.
(elf32_hppa_size_stubs): Rework to only read symbol extension
information once for each input bfd. 10% improvement in linker
