Jiri,

Since Fangrui mentioned this is not a ld/lld bug, then changing
alighment from 1 to 4 might have some adverse effect for the binary,
I guess.

Do you think we could skip these .debug_* sections somehow in elf 
parsing in resolve_btfids? resolve_btfids does not need to read
these sections. This way, no need to change their alignment either.
