If SHF_LINK_ORDER is set in the flags field, then the sh_link field is permitted
to contain the special values SHN_BEFORE (65280) and SHN_AFTER (65281). 
SHN_BEFORE means that this section should come before all other sections that it
is combined with (e.g., it should be the first .text section) and SHN_AFTER
means it should come after all other sections.  See also the SHF_ORDERED linker
flag, which has similar semantics for SHN_BEFORE and SHN_AFTER.

This actually seems somewhat broken, as it will fail in an object file with 
more than 65280 sections.  There doesn't seem to be any mechanism to decide
whether the sh_link field should be treated as SHN_BEFORE/SHN_AFTER or a section
index.  But, whatever.
