Subject2.6.26-rc1 on x86: ld: warning: dot moved backwards before `.text'
Building kernel 2.6.26-rc1 on FC6/i386 causes:

ld -m elf_i386 -T arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/wakeup.lds arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/wakeup.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/wakemain.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/video-mode.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/copy.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/video-vga.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/video-vesa.o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/video-bios.o -o arch/x86/kernel/acpi/realmode/wakeup.elf
ld: warning: dot moved backwards before `.text'
ld: warning: dot moved backwards before `.text'
ld: warning: dot moved backwards before `.text'

This is with gcc-4.2.3 and binutils-2.17.50.0.6-5.fc6 20061020.

The resulting kernel hasn't broken on me yet, however.

A search through the LKML archives showed that this was reported
for 2.6.25-rc3-mm1, but I couldn't find any discussion about it
after that:

The .config causing this warning is available in
<http://user.it.uu.se/~mikpe/linux/ale/config-2.6.26-rc1>
