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?
