Empty function/Infinite loop

I'm trying to reduce code size by compiling my project for THUMB mode. 
Right now I debugging why my code is crashing when compiled for thumb 
then I saw this:

000002a0 <_ZN3App7ControlEv>:

void App::Control()
      2a0:	4770      	bx	lr

further in the dump is this:

0000f9d8 <_ZThn16_N3App7ControlEv>:
     f9d8:	3810      	sub	r0, #16
     f9da:	e7fe      	b	f9da <_ZThn16_N3App7ControlEv+0x2>

When I call App::Control(), code is actually jumping to address 
0000f9d8 which then locks up my app (address f9da is a jump to itself). 
The function I'm calling is empty. I would appreciate if somebody can 
explain this. Thanks.
