    Fix linker bug that could fail to find the shstrtab
    * module/system/vm/linker.scm (<linker-object>): Add name field.  This
      allows the linker to find sections by name, notably before having
      found the .shstrtab section.  As there can be multiple sections with
      type SHT_STRTAB, this fixes a bug whereby we could use a section
      name (a strtab index) into an unrelated strtab.  In the past this
      worked because with ASCII identifiers there won't be an exception,
      although it is possible to accidentally mistake a shared string tail;
      but with UTF-8 identifiers, it's possible for a string table index to
      point in the middle of a codepoint, which is likely not valid UTF-8
      and would raise a bug.  Keeping an additional section name field fixes
      this bug.  Adapt all callers to pass a name argument to
      (find-shstrndx): Update to look at the name field.
    * module/system/vm/assembler.scm (make-object): Pass name to
    Thanks to Daniel Llorens for the test case.
