This patch itself seems simple, but I don't know the reason of each change. A description for each change would be greatly appreciated.

Why is AMDGPU special for this if?

Why is this needed?

{ } -> {}

(Please run clang-format for this patch.)

840 ↗(On Diff #44025)

unsigned -> uint32_t.

This function needs a brief comment to describe why AMDGPU is special.

Then the check should be added here, no?

789 ↗(On Diff #44036)

It still looks odd since the value does not include section's address, but I guess there's a reason for that. Is there a spec or something for this? Please add a link if the document is available.

Clarify a comment and move EM_AMDGPU check.

I have clarified this comment in the latest revision, but offsets stored in a symbol's st_value field for AMDGPU need to be byte offsets from the start of the section. So the section address needs to be ignored when computing the offset.

There is a document specifying this object format. I have been working with people internally to get it released, I will add it to the documents once it is available.

If -e doesn't make sense for AMDGPU, should we treat it an error if a user specifies -e for AMDGPU?

906 ↗(On Diff #44047)

I think this is slightly better since readers don't have to read the subroutine unless they are interested in AMDGPU.

uint32_t PTType = (Config->Emachine != EM_AMDGPU) ? PT_LOAD : getAmdgpuPhdr();

Prevent -e from being used with AMDGPU, simplify some other code.
