Yes, new messages associated with the failures.

Just curious, the addresses printed in those messages does not seem correct.
They should be page aligned. Correct? I think that %p conversion in the
pr_info() may doing something wrong.

Also, the new failures in question are indeed being built with custom linker
scripts designed for use with binutils older than 2.16 (really old). So, no
new users should encounter this issue (I think). It appears that this may
only impact old applications built long ago with pre-2.16 binutils.
