We already "got rid of prelinking": prelink exits with an error so it is
not used. That's precisely the cause of the problem.
Once again: it's not prelinking. It's editing the shared object VMA to
emulate --image-address PE linker option. And it *is not done at all*
which causes problems.

It's not about speed *at all*.
Instead of prelinking, just relink given shared libraries to the specified base address.
