Great detective work there too! :) I do have to wonder if this is
really a binutils/gas bug, though. From what I could gather, it's only
the kernel module loader which can't (and won't, I remember reading
somewhere they don't make sense for the kernel) resolve
R_ARM_THM_JUMP11 relocations, and using -fvisibility=hidden in a
kernel module seems to send the linker a conflicting message. Anyway,
I'd still open that bug, at least to get a definitive answer. ;)

Thanks a lot,
