Huh, that should read data+bss for usual elf binaries which share the
two in one segment (and there seems to be some code around in other
places that expect binaries formed with only two PT_LOAD
segments). Assuming that, setting data_addr conditionally or
unconditionally should not make any difference, it will always be set
for the first data PT_LOAD segment and there will be only one (the
other one will be text).

Sorry for the confusion,
