Actually, for parisc, its not reasonable. It's expected that our
modules have multiple text sections (we have to use -ffunction-sections
to generate them in order that the PCREL17 jump stubs can be
interleaved).

The problem looks to be that some linker error gave the one of the named
function text sections a duplicate name. Helge, can you post he objdump
info that shows which section had a duplicate name?

Even with the duplicate name, though, the module should be perfectly
loadable.
