this did break linux kernel builds (at least in 3.5.0), on x86_64-linux-gnu.
Reverting Tristan's checkin (git 754bb8efffca0d3006e417ba56b92bec9990753d) of
the mips backports to the 2.23 branch solves the issue. The patch touches
generic files in bfd and ld. I didn't check, if it's a binutils issue or a
kernel issue exposed by this change.
$ readelf -s setup.elf | grep video_card
138: 00003660 0 NOTYPE GLOBAL DEFAULT 12 video_cards
151: 00003660 0 NOTYPE GLOBAL DEFAULT 12 video_cards_end
We should see some space between video_cards and video_cards_end, and the fact
that we don't means the kernel isn't going to find any options for video.
