On x86 you'll get a bunch of TEXTREL relocations, so resulting shared
objects will work, but runtime linker will need to modify their .text
segment during load and hence loaded code won't be shared between
processes (such shared objects shouldn't be called "shared" at all :).

On other archituctures you'll get a linker error upfront.
