Excuse me, I am not quite familiar with what you said above, can we
also treat 24-bit as 16MB size limitation for kernel size? I am not
quite sure, could you provide more information about it?.

And I checked "arch/blackfin/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S", for me, in current
case:

- init section is the last section of kernel, l1.text is within init
section, and it is in the fixed address. The other contents before
l1.text are dynamic (depend on kernel size).

- if kernel is too big, the contents before l1.text (the other contents
in .init.text) will override it, so ld reports issues.


Thanks.
