    bd82x6x: don't use absolute symbols
    objcopy -B provides symbols of the form _binary_<name>_(start|end|size).
    However, the _size variant is an absoult symbol.  If one wants to
    relocate the smi loading the _size symbol will be relocated which is
    wrong since it is suppose to be a fixed size. There is no way to
    distinguish symbols that shouldn't be relocated vs ones that can.
    Instead use the _start and _end variants to determine the size.
