Nice patch set.
Thanks for sending it to kbuild ML first
(then you or somebody else will backport it to U-Boot)

BTW, talking about U-Boot, it abuses the multi-definition feature too much.
This always causes broken dependency when U-Boot migrate
CONFIG options to Kconfig. :-/

For my arm64 boards, I used CONFIG_POSITION_INDEPENDENT
instead of coping with CONFIG_SYS_TEXT_BASE mess...
