[uclibc-ng-devel] [PATCH] ARC: ldso: don't use _DYNAMIC at gotpc construct to refer to GOT

Historically we've used a special construct _DYNAMIC at gotpc to refer to
base address of GOT This has been done with a special hack in binutils
which tools guys now wish to get rid off.

So rewrite the 2 callers of this construct to use the simpler and more
obvious constructs. There's existing _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE symbols
provided by linker which can be used for same purposes.
