binutils in most distrbutions have a bug in find_section_by_vma()
that causes objcopy round section addresses incorrectly and that
think the .buildid section overlaps with the .rodata.  Aligning the
sections allows these older verisons of the tools to work on the
xen.efi executable image.

Mailing list discussion: https://sourceware.org/pipermail/binutils/2020-August/112746.html

Fixed in: https://sourceware.org/git/?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=610ed3e08f13b3886fd7194fb7a248dee8724685
