Ok, thanks!

:) I asked and learned, (n)vi(m).... it is much simpler than I thought.
Keep it simple....

I prepared two patches, see below. The amd64 one is reviewed by bde@ and
the i386 is compile tested by me (runtime is theoretically also done,
but I'm not sure since I do not have 32-bit apps on my amd64).

The amd64 is compile and runtime tested. The tools, nm, shows that we
have the weak_references as before.

If you agree I'd like to commit both within a few days to -CURRENT. If
someone steps up and confirms that the i386 part also runs, would be
great, but I expect it to work.

If I'm correct, there is some similar work to be done on arm, mips and
sparc64, I'm happy to do this if the people like to have it done. But I
do not own either of them to test in native config. Except sparc64.....
Here I have blech ;)

Here the two patches
