Description

While disassembling practically anything kernel-like, I'm seeing dis crash.

core 'core.29245' of 29245:    dis /kernel/genunix
 0805288b construct_symtab (8066b20, 80524bc, 804794c, 80660d4) + 1f7
 08052be5 dis_tgt_create (8047b88, 100, 0, fefa0990) + 18d
 08054129 dis_file (8047b88, 8047aa4, 805532c, 805433c) + 11
 08054621 main     (2, 8047aa4, 8047ab0, 80523cf) + 2fd
 0805242d _start   (2, 8047b84, 8047b88, 0, 8047b98, 8047ba7) + 7d

I'm seeing the same with /platform/i86pc/kernel/unix, /kernel/drv/amd64/bge, and it appears pretty much any kernel objects.

This is triggered by symbols in special sections (such as COMMON or ABS). Since they are relocated at run-time by the linker, we can ignore these symbols (and in fact when disassembling the code on-disk, since they are relocations, there are no direct references to the symbol).
