I see it too in my overnight tests.  It was this patch.  arm creates
both .rel.dyn and .rela.dyn.  One or the other needs to be stripped or
you run foul of reloc size tests in bfd_section_from_shdr.

I'll fix it some time this weekend.  If that's not quick enough for
you, feel free to revert the ldemul.c and ldlang.c changes.
