Hi Romain,

Thank you for reporting and doing the initial investigation.  Sorry, I haven't
built uclibc-ng for a while.

Have you been able to make much progress?

Right, this patch added several new validations.  I am guessing the complaint is
correct and we need to fix something in uclibc-ng.

The above error comes because we need binutils 2.32.x with the new toolchain.

It's likely the new validations added with binutils 2.32.x.  I'll try to build
uclibc-ng and see if I can reproduce.
