Thank you, it was very useful. It seems that test4 needed some adjustments
to actually provide the required dso for tests.
Now, the patch at http://people.freebsd.org/~kib/misc/init_array.2.patch
passes your tests and allows to boot world built with pre-patched csu
into multiuser mode.
I decided to move the calls to initializers for main binary into rtld,
and used the brand note to distinguish old and new csu.
ATM patch is only for i386 and amd64, I will port to other architectures
after some feedback.
