    The thing about the build ID section that brings up issues with linking is
    that it is a SHF_ALLOC, SHT_NOTE section. As you mentioned, this is a
    general, straightforward, and well-defined thing in ELF. But in practice,
    there were not previously SHF_ALLOC note sections used with custom linker
    scripts like the kernel's. (They are used every day in normal executables
    and DSOs, but those don't use custom linker scripts.)


    Thanks,
    Roland
