To try and make this patch less of a hack I tried this:

add a new _bfd_generic_bfd_free_cached_info and in libbfd.h change the
#define _bfd_generic_bfd_free_cached_info bfd_true
to a proper prototype:
bfd_boolean _bfd_generic_bfd_free_cached_info (bfd *);

Then in libbfd.c I added the implementaion:

_bfd_generic_bfd_free_cached_info (bfd *abfd) {
        bfd_hash_table_free (&abfd->section_htab);
        objalloc_free ((struct objalloc *) abfd->memory);
        return TRUE;

So I need someone else woh knows about bfd to say if this code is appropriate
for the generic implementation or if it's only appropriate for some
targets/backends. Also I don't know if this would mess up other users of
bfd_free_cached_info, though as far as I can see it's only called from
