Ah, master actually has a fix from 1 month ago that I hadn't spotted:

        bfd/elf: Don't read non-existing secondary relocs

        Without this we unconditionally try to slurp in secondary
        relocs for each input section, leading to quadratic behaviour
        even for strip(1).  On write-out we already used a flag to avoid

        So track existence of secondary relocs on read-in as well and
        only slurp in when needed.  This still doesn't implement a proper
        list of secondary reloc sections, and still would exhibit quadratic
        behaviour if most input sections have a secondary reloc section.
        But at least on normal input this avoids any slowdown from trying
        to handle secondary relocation sections.

It would be great if a point release could be made that includes it.

Thank you!
