    SubjectRe: Patch "i386: Relocatable kernel support" causes instant reboot
    > Thanks Jean. Your compressed/head.o looks fine.

    No it doesn't -- the .text.head section doesn't have
    the ALLOC attribute set. The section then ends up not
    being assigned to an output segment (during the linking
    of vmlinux) and all hell breaks loose. The linker gives
    you a warning about this btw.

    Jean, how old is your binutils?
    Since 2.15 at least this should be set automatically
    on sections named .text.<whatever> .

    It wouldn't hurt to specify it by hand in the source
    code of course -- change

    .section ".text.head"


    .section ".text.head","ax",@progbits

    in compressed/head.S .
