OK, so I had another discussion with Michael Karcher who analyzed the bug and the
problem is apparently that after the change, mkimage adds an alignment to the module
address which it did not before the change.

And the suspicion why this affects ia64 and not x86_64 could be that the module data
is properly aligned as mkimage expects while it's not on ia64.
