I think the advice that binutils gives you in its postinst is sound:
There are a few work-arounds, but the most reliable is to edit the
linker script for your architecture (e.g. arch/i386/vmlinux.lds) and
remove the '*(.text.exit)' entry from the 'DISCARD' line. It will
bloat the kernel somewhat, but it should link properly.
