binutils-2.21 and -2.22. An x86-64 defconfig will fail with
Invalid absolute R_X86_64_32S relocation: _etext
and after fixing that one, with
Invalid absolute R_X86_64_32S relocation: __end_of_kernel_reserve

Similar errors with 32-bit defconfig.

Should I resend with that added to the commit message?
