Until someone can determine why binutils 2.14 and 2.15 are including a
third, empty, non-code segment in the m68k kernel image, you can use this
workaround to remove that segment to make the kernel image agreeable to
bootloaders, but you will need an uncompressed kernel image. See,


There's probably a bug somewhere, but I've no idea whether that is bug is
in the kernel build, the bootloader, or binutils.
