Hi Jeff,

I further investigated this and it seems to be a binutils problem. Michael
Meissners recent change to put things into .sbss instead of .sdata triggers a
bug in binutils- (and earlier probably). I built egcs with a current
gas snapshot without problems.

I would appreciate if someone could send the corresponding binutils fix to H.J
Lu, so he can include it in binutils-
