I'm not affiliated with elftoolchain, I am just trying it out on my
system as an alternative to elfutils libelf for its clean codebase
that doesn't use many GNU C extensions.

I've done some basic testing to make sure that the .o files after
being processed with `objtool generate --no-fp --retpoline` match
between elfutils and elftoolchain. I noticed two differences, one of
which was due to a bug in elftoolchain that has since been fixed, and
the other is with the offset of SHT_NOBITS section after rewriting[0],
which I think doesn't matter.
