  Linker may set p_align of a PT_LOAD segment larger than p_align of the
first PT_LOAD segment to satisfy a section alignment:

Elf file type is DYN (Shared object file)
Entry point 0x0
There are 10 program headers, starting at offset 64

 Section to Segment mapping:

   01     .init_array .fini_array .data.rel.ro .dynamic .got .got.plt
   02     .data .bss

We should align the first PT_LOAD segment to the maximum p_align of all
PT_LOAD segments, similar to the kernel commit:
