Hi Joe, first of all, thank you for you in-depth review. I did not have 
the time to go through everything yet, and I'll reply properly to the 
other comments soon. Yet, I would like to add a quick note here, since 
you are testing ppc64le. ppc64le is exactly one of the things I have 
been dealing with in the last two days, specifically the .TOC. symbols 
(there is also another bug related to converting relocations of symbols 
with index 0, but this one is architecture agnostic).

If you would like to take a look, the fix is in the latest commit here:
- https://github.com/SUSE/klp-convert/tree/fixppc64le

I would be very glad if you have any comment or input on that, and I 
guess that if the fix is that simple, I can manage to squash it into v3.

Thanks,
João
