"Text pages of DLLs are shared between processes"

I thought this wasn't possible with ASLR'd relocations all over the place in the text?

Most modern architectures make extensive use of PC-relstive instructions for branches and load/store. That means when rebasing a binary you just need to modify the pointers in the data segment (things like GOT entries, etc) and can leave the text untouched.
