FILO explicitly gets rid of all ELF notes during build, except the
name/version for elfboot, with a reference to gcc producing many junk

Another thought:

While it's probably quite possible to send stuff from .c to larball -
is this really something we want to do?

Should non-code information in .c really have to be in the larball?

Or, put a bit differently, should the file in the larball really need
to have information from a .c that is not code?
