This has been broken for many years :-(

I have a couple of times almost fixed it, but it requires that we
change from using "ld -r" to build the built-in.o objects and some
changes to the powerpc head.S code ... I will give it another shot now
that the merge window is almost over (and linux-next goes into its
quieter time).
