    Thanks, applied.

    This happens. I'm still unsure whether we can do it in .31.0 or need
    to delay it to .31.1 via a -stable backport tag. One more problem
    with it and i think we'll need to delay it - it's just too large and
    changes too many aspects of the linker script.

    Would it be possible to split it into two pieces: 'minimal fix' and
    'clean up' portions?

    Ingo
