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.
