Hmmm... Why it is bogus?

I have been thinking about that since I saw this first time. Why we could
not use -I gcc option here? Could you enlighten me?

We know this right now. However, I spent some time to discover this at
the beginning of this work. This file is full of magic so I think that
this comment helps a bit to understand what is going on. So, please
do me a favor and let's leave it here. If you wish I can use lowercase
and remove underscore. Additionally, I removed similar comment for
__reloc() (as you requested) which does not make sense if it is
prefixed with static.
