    Years of hacking on ELF formats :(

    Ignore drivers/usb/host/built-in.o, it is a conglomerate that contains
    one object, the script cannot distinguish between that and a normal

    R_386_32 is an ELF relocation type for ix86 binaries. It means that
    uhci-hcd.c has code that refers to a function defined as __exit. The
    only such function is uhci_hcd_cleanup but I cannot see where it is
    being referenced. The USB people should be able to track this one
