IMHO, the binary, when invoked on the system one is trying to clone,
presents all necessary information for the interested reader to

At this moment, apparently, the only interested reader of said binary
is the load routine :(

Whether it is a jump to 'panic' or a return jump to invoke a library
routine, it is available for the interested reader of the binary.

This process worked in a tightly clustered group of 31 processors
where the object of the invocation could be in the memory of the CPU
(or need to be loaded) or it could be in the memory of a PPU (or need
to be loaded), of which there were 30.

Of course, there was a prologue section for each callable routine
which identified it and its version number among other things and that
may or may not exist in RHEL, I dunno.
