Right, in this case most of the samples seems to map to what is expected
for that workload, and the binary was prelinked. Good.

What about binaries that are not prelinked? IIRC there is code in the
full blown ELF symbol-elf.c file to detect that and act accordingly,
from a _very_ quick look I didn't saw it in this minimalistic ELF symtab
reader, hence my question.
