Strip copies the whole .reloc section, including entries for removed 
debug sections. This is documented in rebase/README. Rebase checks for 
this condition in Relocations::relocate and silently ignores wrong 
entries. Well, except in Marco's dict_snowball.dll.

VirtualSize (offset 8 in section header) should be exact. There are no 
terminator zero block, but can be zero section padding. VirtualSize + 
padding = SizeOfRawData.
