Hi Eric,

Sorry to hear you ran into issues with gcc-6.

This error suggests that your issue is a duplicate of #841419, which is
that the compiler enables PIE by default (which is basically a variant
of PIC).  I have merged your bug into  #841419 accordingly.

I believe it is possible to compile the kernel with gcc-5.  I hope you
will consider that an acceptable workaround for you in the interim while
we solve #841419.
