--- Comment #12 from Ali Bahrami <ali_swbugzilla at emvision dot com> ---
I've sent an email with a more detailed reply.

I think that propagating SHF_STRINGS, if set, should be
done for all platforms, and not just for Solaris. We do
seem to be unique in setting it today, but note that
its a generic ELF flag, and it would be legal on any

Given support for the rules Cary gave earlier, I don't
believe that Solaris needs the special back end handling
that this patch adds. I don't know if it would be useful
on other platforms, or whether its nice to have as a bit
of insurance for future issues.
