    I get lots of this when building latest -mm for avr32:

    .tmp_kallsyms2.S:643: Warning: right operand is a bignum; integer 0

    Reverting this patch makes the warnings go away. I think it's
    because on avr32, .init is the first section, not .text, so many of the
    offsets become negative and kallsyms doesn't seem to handle this very
    well. Here's a few lines from .tmp_kallsyms2.S:

    PTR _text + 0xffffffffffff4000
    PTR _text + 0xffffffffffff4000

    Any idea how to fix this? Could we introduce a new symbol that always
    marks the start of the image perhaps?
