  Arrgh.  No, it doesn't.  Blast, knew I was bound to forget something.  We'll
need to hang on to peflags for now, but I'll certainly add the relevant option
to the linker spec for next time round.  (We should probably send a patch to
that effect upstream as well.)

  Do you want to delay the release for this?  It will take about a fortnight
to do a respin.  I was planning to start a new spin rolling in the background
basically as soon as I've uploaded this version (just to add the missing patch
for pr38579), so 4.3.4-2 could follow equally as quickly as it would take me
to respin 4.3.4-1 and fix both these issues in the same timescale without
delaying the initial rollout, if you think that's ok.
