Bug#643967: prelink -u fails on some binaries; this breaks debsums

severity 643967 important
tag 643967 -security

This problem should not be considered a security issue.  Anyone
utilizing prelink should be aware of the fact that it changes
binaries, and there is the possibility that those changes aren't
reversible; leading to differing checksums in tools like debsums.  The
appropriate course of action for one so concerned is to completely
avoid prelink until it is 100% reliably reversible.

Best wishes,
