Upstream won't beat you to it.  It's a kernel bug.  A reference to
.text.exit from .data means that some module left a pointer to its
module exit functions even though they were tagged __exit.  There's
nothing binutils can do about it; they're really not there.

It used to be silently ignored, which is just wrong.
