Description

[ELF] More dynamic relocation packing

Currently, with Android dynamic relocation packing, only relative
relocations are grouped together. This patch implements similar
packing for non-relative relocations.

The implementation groups non-relative relocations with the same
r_info and r_addend, if using RELA. By requiring a minimum group
size of 3, this achieves smaller relocation sections. Building Android
for an ARM32 device, I see the total size of /system/lib decrease by
392 KB.

Grouping by r_info also allows the runtime dynamic linker to implement
an 1-entry cache to reduce the number of symbol lookup required. With
such 1-entry cache implemented on Android, I'm seeing 10% to 20%
reduction in total time spent in runtime linker for several executables
that I tested.

As a simple correctness check, I've also built x86_64 Android and booted
successfully.
