There is a bug/problem which hidden by --section-start option. In
MipsGot::finalize method linker calculates number of required "page"
address entries in GOT. To do so we need to know sizes of output sections.
If there is no script, linker calculates the sizes before call the finalize
method. In case of linker script, the finalize method called too early. I'm
going to fix this, but not right now. Maybe your fix solves the problem.
Meantime we can mark the test case as XFAIL.
