I did the rtld internally for 6.4 almost the same way, i.e, have a
static root and get a simple program going, in my case it was on the
lines of 'printf("%p\n", printf);'. Another useful thing is to have is
a hacked version of printf which does not the libc but does the write
syscall in assembly directly, this was useful to print out debug stuff
from rtld code.
