    SubjectTrying to make a working kernel with the gold linker

    So I was trying to see if I could make the kernel build with the gold
    linker (since until it can, I can't install it on my system).

    I saw a message from HJ indicating one of the problems was x86_64 gold
    used an incompatible max-page-size setting, so I tried changing it in
    hopes that would make a bootable kernel.

    No dice, it didn't work. (At least not with a 2.20 binutils-gold.)

    Does anybody know what the other issues with the gold linker? Is the
    2.22 binutils-gold more likely to work?
