Sorry about this. I missed a critical flag (--eh-frame-hdr) that gcc
specifies implicitly when converting the Makefile to invoke ld
directly. This went unnoticed because the linking of vmlinux (which
also uses ld directly) does not need this information, so it does not
specify the flag. Sending a verified fix now.
