That seemed to be the only failure in the updated logs.

I've committed the attached patch to fix the problem, which was the
result of trying to convert to mov-to-lea conversion for a reference
to __ehdr_start, when the headers can't be mapped to a load segment.
In that case, __ehdr_start is defined during relocation scanning, and
we decide that the conversion is OK, but it is turned into an
undefined symbol later when we find that the headers can't be mapped
into a segment. As a result, we need a GOT entry, but one was never
