    Subjectbuild failure in Linus' tree with gcc 4.4.3
    Hi all,

    My x86_64 allmodconfig build fail like this:

    OBJCOPY arch/x86/boot/vmlinux.bin
    AS arch/x86/boot/header.o
    LD arch/x86/boot/setup.elf
    OBJCOPY arch/x86/boot/setup.bin
    BUILD arch/x86/boot/bzImage
    Setup is 14768 bytes (padded to 14848 bytes).
    System is 4766 kB
    /bin/sh: line 1: 20126 Segmentation fault arch/x86/boot/tools/build arch/x86/boot/setup.bin arch/x86/boot/vmlinux.bin > arch/x86/boot/bzImage

    I have bisected it down to commit
    291f36325f9f252bd76ef5f603995f37e453fc60 ("x86, efi: EFI boot stub
    support"). This may well be a compiler bug that this commit just happens
    to poke.

    The toolchain is PowerPC hosted cross tools:
    x86_64-linux-gcc (GCC) 4.4.3
    GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.20

    I tried an allmodconfig build with my native compiler (gcc (Debian
    4.6.2-14) 4.6.2, GNU gold (GNU Binutils for Debian 2.22) 1.11) and it
    worked fine.

    That is a large commit, so I am not sure where to go from here.
