Above is exactly the place it's used.
I need to cache it because after the module load is finished the ELF header is 
freed,
pltsec->plt pointer (*) is not valid any more.
With the above modification it's possible to call the function during the whole 
life
time of the module.

I'll prepare v5 based on your other comments.
