Good, at least one bug is off my radar.
I was thinking about the ipa-comdats issue and I remembered older problem where I wanted
to place thunks before function (to avoid need to jump back to the body) and that caused
problems for you, too, since solaris assembler apparently refused other than main comdat
group symbol being defined first.

Perhaps we run into similar issues? Do you know what precisely are the restrictions here?
(we do, for example, comdat groups that do not contain a symbol the group is called by,
so I do not see how the main symbol name is significant)

IPA-comdat brings extra symbols into the comdat group and pays no attention on the order,
so perhaps this is causing the issue.  We may add some logic into assemble_functions
to fix the order or work out why this breaks.

Would be nice to have non-free OS for testing.  Comdats and aliases seems to be riddled by
implementation bugs and it would be nice to have way to test for those.
