SubjectCompiling with 2.6.25-rc2 with binutils 2.17 fails?
Date
Is anybody else having trouble compiling the kernel with binutils 2.17?

The build does this:

Still trying to track down why, but it works on a toolchain built from
binutils 2.18 and gcc 4.1.3, but not with a toolchain from binutils 2.17 and
gcc 4.1.2. And considering where it's failing...

If binutils 2.18 is the only version that now builds the kernel, could we
update Documentaiton/Changes to say that instead of 2.12?
